Change isn't easy, but that doesn't stop you

Damage to environmental and public health is preventable and should not be an expected outcome of living today.

Dear Friend and Ally,


Last week we sent you a story about St. Louis along the Pine River where more than 8 million Michiganders were poisoned.


This neglected community is just one story of many, and an example of what we are trying to stop. We are 20% towards our goal of raising $15,000 by the end of the month. We need your support to assist grassroots groups to block harmful projects like tar sands and public land oil and gas leasing in Utah or pipelines across the Heartland.


Help us contribute to a different legacy today

We are the doctor- lawyer- researcher-on-call, in service to neglected communities like St. Louis, to cleanup and prevent tragedies like this from happening again. No other group fills the on-call role SEHN provides, and the need for SEHN’s work continues to grow.


You are a part of this growing movement to protect future generations and our habitat Change isn't easy, but that doesn't stop you from helping us contribute to a different legacy, today. Your financial support allows SEHN to bring decades of first-hand experience applying science and law to imminent and ongoing environmental and health disasters. You are a part of making real change possible.


Thank you,

Ann, Carolyn, Kaitlin, Sherri, and Ted

“To support the work of environmental public health is to bolster the probability of a non-event: The tumor that never metastasized. The baby carried to term. The carefree child on the playground. For 20 years, prevention has been the work of the Science & Environmental Health Network.”
