Communities in Action


News from the Field

Every year, Toxics Action Center works with thousands of residents, in hundreds of communities across New England.  We organize with neighborhoods for safe drinking water, for clean air, for pesticide-free schools, and dozens of other goals.  Below are updates and stories from just some of the towns, communities, and states working with Toxics Action Center for more sustainable communities.
