SVTC embraces a vision of a future which is based on a sustainable nonpolluting economy where a healthy environmentis a right rather than a privilege. We strive to achieve this vision by being a leader--both locally and nationally--in:
- Documenting and exposing the hazards of toxic chemical pollution;
- Educating the community about the dangers of toxic hazards;
- Empowering people to hold government and industry accountable; and
- Shifting the environmental priorites of industry and government to a focus on pollution prevention and the developmentof environmentally beneficial technologies and alternatives.
