About

Building resilient communities requires us to look at complex interactions between the built and natural environments we inhabit and our vulnerabilities within them. But what should we know about less visible barriers to resilience? Certain chemicals found in everyday products we use and wear have impacts on our bodies and can compound stressors such as COVID-19 and climate-related events.

Join us in conversation with Meredith Williams, Director, California Department of Toxic Substances Control, and Debbie Raphael, Director, San Francisco Department of the Environment to learn about toxic “forever” chemicals and what we can do about them at both the individual and system levels.
