Funding Essential to Continue Our Work
As many of you know, CLEAN has been going through a transition since Jane Dale Owen, inspiration, found and primary funder of CLEAN, died a year ago last June. Her death was unexpected, and we all needed time to reflect on what this means for CLEAN. We continue to be enthusiastic about continuing this work. This year, we renewed our mission and our focus:
To provide information, education and advocacy for sustainable solutions to the critical environmental issues of our time.
- To be a useful resource of news and information about the critical environmental issues we are facing today
- Increase awareness about the science that proves the connections between toxic exposure and health impacts
- Partner with other organizations and agencies to have a greater impact
- Develop a CLEAN Team of young people, national experts and community leaders to do more outreach and advocacy work as part of the Jane Dale Owen Environmental Action Project
