Petition Closed

The current NYSDOH & ATSDR health assessment of the Newtown Creek looks at the state of our community health (past & present) in terms of direct contact with the creek, and in terms of the current way of assessing the effects of chemical exposure on our community. That’s not acceptable. Community residents have long complained about our poor environment and the effects it has had on their health and our community. We demand A REAL HEALTH STUDY and CHANGES IN HOW BOTH AGENCIES LOOK AT CHEMICAL EXPOSURE IN OUR COMMUNITY.
