The Senate has just introduced a bill (S.1624) that would BAN chlorpyrifos, a toxic pesticide that harms kids’ brains. This pesticide has been linked to serious health effects in young children when their mothers were exposed during pregnancy, including nervous system damage, autism, ADHD and lower IQs.
After Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt canceled a scheduled ban of chlorpyrifos, more than 100,000 activists took action asking retailers to prohibit the use of chlorpyrifos on the food they sell. Now it’s time for the Senate to take action and BAN the pesticide once and for all!
We need every voice to make sure this bill passes. Use the form below to contact your senators and urge them to support the ban on chlorpyrifos!
