There is a rising tide of awareness of the risks of glyphosate to human and ecosystem health. With insect and bird populations on the decline, and cancer on the rise (including, alarmingly, cases of childhood cancer) it is imperative that we prioritize actions and policies that make public lands safer for our most vulnerable members of our human and ecological community. Because our federal agencies have failed to protect us from the risks of systemic toxic chemicals, community members must stand up and organize, town by town, to kick out glyphosate and create safe public spaces.
