Mission Statement

Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility (WPSR) is a statewide organization of health professionals and concerned citizens advocating for human and environmental health in the local and global community

Description

Though originally formed to address a growing nuclear crisis in 1979, WPSR’s programs have evolved and currently include efforts to slow, stop, and reverse global warming and the and toxic degradation of the environment; work to eliminate toxic chemicals from children’s products, in hospitals and beyond; and advocacy aimed at cleanup of the Hanford Nuclear Reservation and the protection of the Columbia River basin. WPSR’s most valuable and unique asset is the credibility we have established in Washington State in response to our work, and through our ability to lend expert medical perspectives, a thorough and scientifically valid approach to issues, and a stable state wide presence advocating for public health for over 30 years.
