Let's start April with some good news - just days ago, the U.S. Senate unanimously passed the
13th Asbestos Awareness Resolution
! Led by Sen. Jon Tester of Montana, along with bipartisan cosponsors, this resolution designates April 1-7, 2017 as National Asbestos Awareness Week.
Toward the end of the month, we'll be back in Washington to double down on our advocacy. We'll be partnering with a major environmental NGO to address regulatory rollbacks and fight to protect health and safety. Stay tuned - we'll have more details coming after the conference.
Last but not least, I'd just like to say - it takes a village to coordinate an international conference and weeklong global awareness campaign, and we could never have done it without brilliant contributions of our dedicated volunteers and the support of our generous sponsors. So to all of you we say - THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. YOU made all this happen.
