Sign on to the PFAS Community Campaign

Laura Olah, the Executive Director of Citizens for Safe Water Around Badger, Coordinator of the PFAS Community Campaign - Wisconsin and National Coordinator of the Cease Fire Campaign is helping to organize a statewide campaign in response to toxic PFAS groundwater contamination at Wisconsin military sites like Fort McCoy, Volk Field, Truax Field, and General Mitchell Air National Guard. Industrial sites like the Tyco/Johnson Controls facilities in Marinette, Wisconsin are also sources of PFAS groundwater contamination that has spread from these sites, threatening nearby fisheries and affecting residential wells.

Some of the organizations that have already signed on are: Citizens for Safe Water Around Badger, Clean Water Action Council, Fire Fighter Cancer Foundation, Midwest Environmental Justice Organization, Physicians for Social Responsibility Wisconsin and others.

HOW TO ADD YOUR GROUP: Send an email that your group endorses the Campaign’s goal statement (below):

The PFAS Community Campaign seeks to protect human health and the environment by calling for the immediate transition to safer non-fluorinated alternatives.

Where PFAS contamination is found or suspected to exist, testing and cleanup methods and remedies implemented should be fully protective of human and ecological health, prevent toxic emissions, be readily and properly monitored, and provide permanent solutions. Cleanup methods and remedies should not create more toxic by-products. All PFAS wastes should have an authorized treatment plan acceptable to communities, tribes and indigenous peoples – including those both directly and indirectly impacted.

We seek to advance the principles of environmental justice by assuring that all people enjoy the same degree of protection and access to decision‐making processes. We pursue these goals through peaceful non‐violent action and democratic organizing consistent with the Jemez Principles.
