The goal of the action team is to build a support base of 500 or more concerned parents, family members and residents who will mobilize and take action to organize healthier, pesticide-free schools.
Become part of our team to help assist Healthy Schools and Healthy Kids by taking this pledge of support. By signing up you will receive:
- Pride that you are helping students and employees--we’ll share a final list with legislators who are making decisions on community health
- NCAP Monthly Newsletter (includes updates on the Health People and Communities program)
- Emails on developments specific to your area
- Opportunities to engage in a campaign to reduce pesticide exposure (such as an invitation to a school weeding party, links to send an email to a school board or legislator or other nearby efforts)
Don’t worry; you can opt out of these notices at any time.
Sign the Pledge and Join the Healthy Schools Action Team:
"In order to perform their best, all students need a healthy school environment. Children need protection from chemical exposure because they are more susceptible to the detrimental effects of pesticides than adults. Since their physiology is developing, pesticides can disrupt natural growth processes resulting in long term negative health effects. Reducing pesticide use in schools improves indoor air quality, improves test scores and reduces absenteeism; it can save district money and promote a healthier overall environment. I pledge to support Healthy Schools and Healthy Kids!"
