Environmental Justice and the Built Environment: Protecting Children and Families
This webinar will provide an introduction to the role of building materials in influencing chemical exposures, as well as the latest science on disproportionate chemical exposures among pregnant people, infants and children. The speakers will explain the impacts of building materials across the product life cycle, exploring the ways in which manufacture, use and disposal of building materials all can contribute to chemical exposures. This session will also provide a brief explanation of recent findings from the Environmental influences on Child Health Outcome (ECHO) Program, illuminating the chemical exposures of individuals in the US and the ways in which these exposures vary by race and ethnicity. This webinar will be of interest for building professionals, decision makers, and others who are working to create healthy homes and communities.

This webinar is the first in a three-part series exploring the disproportionate exposure of pregnant people, infants, children of color and other vulnerable populations to toxic chemicals and the ways in which choosing healthier building materials can protect vulnerable populations. This series is co-hosted by BlueGreen Alliance, the Collaborative for Health and Environment, the Program for Reproductive Health and the Environment, and Healthy Building Network.
