We are just one month into 2019 and it is abundantly clear -- our work to end the man-made asbestos disaster can been seen and felt nationwide!
Throughout the year, we remain committed to serving as an active stakeholder in policy discussions in Washington, D.C.
As we enter the 116th congress, we have a strong team of legislative leaders preparing to introduce the Alan Reinstein Ban Asbestos Now Act of 2019, and we feel more confident than ever in our ban asbestos actions.
As we dive into February, I encourage you to let
National Cancer Prevention Month
inspire you to be active in spreading awareness - it can be as easy as sharing a post online. On February 7, we'll be connecting science and policy for action at
Less Cancer's National Cancer Prevention Day
in Washington, D.C. Remember that cancer prevention is more than just a day or even a month; it must be our mantra always - "Hear Asbestos. Think Prevention." Prevention remains our only cure.
ADAO is grateful to our 2019 Donors and Sponsors. We are especially grateful to our Platinum Sponsors
Motley Rice, LLC
Simmons Hanly Conroy, LLC
; as well as our Silver Sponsor Early, Lucarelli, Sweeney, Meisenkothen. These amazing sponsors - alongside individual donors like you - bring us closer than ever to a ban on asbestos.
It is with great sadness that we mourn the loss of Christine Winter and Paul Zygielbaum. Both Christine and Paul were extremely dedicated, loyal advocates for a ban on asbestos, but more importantly, they were dear friends to the ADAO family. Paul, a Mesothelioma Warrior, and Christine, an ardent advocate, will be missed dearly, and will be in our thoughts as we fight harder now than ever to ban this lethal carcinogen.
