Using social media to reduce Black women’s exposures to toxic chemicals in consumer products

This project, conducted by the Toxics Use Reduction Institute (TURI) and the Silent Spring Institute in partnership with the Resilient Sisterhood Project, worked to educate women about chemical exposures that can contribute to hormone disruption, asthma, diabetes, and cancer risk among Black women, and to share information about safer alternatives. The first year of the project focused on learning more about how women make choices about the products they purchase and use. The second year focused on sharing information widely by training and supporting social media influencers.
