Washington, DC—Non-profit advocacy organization Children’s Health Defense (CHD) announced today the formation of two new chapters, CHD California and CHD New York. These chapters will provide powerful, unified platforms for advocates to educate the public on key issues and improve policy on a state-by-state basis. Chapters are a natural progression of CHD’s growth to achieve its mission to end the chronic childhood disease epidemics now affecting 54% of our nation’s children. Similar statistics are seen around the world. Peer-reviewed research confirms that pesticides, herbicides, vaccines, 5G and other culprits are negatively impacting children’s health. CHD’s state and international chapters will provide a powerful way to enhance and strengthen grassroots efforts to address these crucial concerns.
“Grassroots advocacy is the cornerstone of any issue-driven movement,” says CHD Executive Director Laura Bono. “The knowledge and tenacity of advocates, many of whom have been on the frontlines for years, cannot be overstated. The experience and determination of hundreds of thousands of activists will literally be the means to end the childhood epidemics.”
