President's Message



You heard me right - WE HAVE A BAN BILL! 

The Alan Reinstein Ban Asbestos Now Act of 2017 was introduced in the U.S. Senate today, November 2, 2017. If passed, this bill would ban asbestos in the U.S. within 18 months. 

Sen. Merkley of Oregon is championing the bill, and shared his thoughts on the importance of banning asbestos: " It's outrageous that in the year 2017, asbestos is still allowed in the United States. It's time for us to catch up to the rest of the developed world, and ban this dangerous public health threat once and for all."

We at ADAO couldn't agree more. We encourage you to reach out and thank Sen. Merkley and the seven strong original cosponsors: Cory Booker (D-NJ), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Ed Markey (D-MA), Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Jon Tester (D-MT), and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI).

And while Congressional champions like those listed above are invaluable, it is our incredible supporters, donors, and sponsors like yourself who allow ADAO to do the work we do. This month, we kick off our Giving Tuesday Fundraiser - if you can, please consider chipping in just a little bit to help us keep fighting for our ban and an asbestos free future!

From the bottom of my heart, I am so THANKFUL for the invaluable support, donations, and leadership from each and every one of you.
