The Environmental Links to Breast Cancer and What Can Be Done About It
Monday - January 23rd
Can your shampoo or cologne make you sick? The answer is yes! Still, many cosmetic manufacturers place harmful chemicals in their products while publicly pledging their support to "finding the cure" for breast cancer. This is pinkwashing.
Come join us on this Monday from 5:30-7:00 to hear Cindy Luppi, New England Director of Clean Water Action and Senior Strategist and Steering Committee Member of Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, and Eric Boles, Interim Executive Director of the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition.
They will discuss how environmentalists and breast cancer activists are coming together to end pinkwashing and promote a more prevention-oriented approach to the cancer epidemic.
The event is free, and will be held at 10 Behrakis Health Science Building, 30 Leon Street, Northeastern University.
Sponsored by the Northeastern Environmental Justice Research Collaborative (NEJRC) and the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, this event is part of the Leaders in the Environmental Movement public lecture series at Northeastern University this Winter season.
