Sign up TODAY to take a stand against corporate polluters!

The Toxics Reduction and Right to Know Act, initiative petition 56, will give Oregon voters a voice in the 2020 election to close toxic pollution loopholes and allow total transparency of toxic pollution. Toxic pollution is making people sick and contributing to unnecessary deaths. Toxic pollution causes cancer. Toxic pollution causes asthma. Toxic pollution causes heart disease. Together we can reduce toxic pollution and lift the gag order that prevents local communities from learning which toxics go into their air, water, and soil from industrial and commercial facilities.


The Toxics Reduction and Right to Know Act has been endorsed by Oregon League of Conservation Voters, Renew Oregon, Beyond Toxics, PCUN, Oregon Environmental Council, NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon NAACP Eugene/Springfield, Union of Concerned Scientists, and others in the Oregonians for Clean Air coalition.

Here’s what the Toxics Reduction and Right to Know act does:
Close Toxic Pollution Loopholes. Before a new facility can open for business, they must meet health standards that show they aren’t releasing dangerous toxic pollution into neighborhoods and schoolyards. But Oregon has a massive loophole that allows older companies to keep emitting toxins in our communities, leaving people vulnerable to pollution-caused cancer, asthma, heart disease, liver disease, impaired brain development, infertility, premature birth, and congenital disabilities. Low-income seniors, pregnant women, children, and people of color are disproportionately affected by industrial pollution. In 2018 corporate polluters successfully doubled the legal cancer risk from toxins and increased the health risk from hazards such as arsenic, mercury, and lead by five times. The Toxics Reduction and Right to Know Act measure would close that loophole and set unprecedented limits on toxic pollution to protect our health and families.
Total Transparency of Toxic Pollution. State law limits local communities from requiring companies to disclose toxics being released into our water and soil as well as our air. This leaves families and neighbors without access to easily understandable information about dangerous pollution in their communities. This measure would lift the gag orders on local communities and hold polluters accountable. It would allow public information on the use, storage, release, possession, or composition of hazardous or toxic substances at industrial, manufacturing, and other facilities.
Are you ready to hold polluters accountable? Then print and sign the petition now! Please make sure to mail your signed petition as soon as possible to PO Box 5999, Portland, Oregon, 97228. Signatures are due back no later than Friday, November 22nd, by 6:00 pm.
