CEH’s Gala to Claim our Healthy Future

Wow! What a powerful night! Senator Kevin de Leon and Reverend Yearwood rocked the room. And they reminded us that power is with the people to Claim Our Healthy Future.

Your energy and generosity on Thursday night was something fierce! All of us at Center for Environmental Health were blown away by the buzz we created together, and by the commitment and determination we could feel in the room. We raised more than $300,000 to support CEH’s work to push back on this Administration and the chemical lobby, and to protect the planet from toxic chemicals. Check out some photos here of the fantastic evening.

Thursday night also reminded us why we do the work we do, that we must love and celebrate each other, and that we have an incredible community that will catapult this organization into the next 20 years. Thank you for coming, thank you for giving, and most of all, thank you for all that you do to claim our healthy future.

We are so proud to call you family and to renew our commitment. To paraphrase the tenacious Reverend Yearwood: CEH can’t stop, won’t stop fighting to protect children and communities!

In gratitude,

Your CEH Family
