California Nurses Committed
To Healthy People and A Healthy Planet
California Nurses for Environmental Health & Justice
California Nurses for Environmental Health & Justice is an organization of individual nurses and nursing organizations that partner with NGOs, healthcare organizations, and communities to champion environmental health and justice. Nurses recognize the enormous impact that we are having on the environment and how our compromised environment is, in turn, impacting human and ecological health. Equally importantly, we are acting on this knowledge by bringing our many nursing roles into play as we integrate our concerns about environmental health into nursing education, practice, research and into local and state advocacy efforts.
Our range of concerns include climate change, air and water pollution, health issues associated with food and agriculture, toxic chemicals in our everyday lives, ending our reliance on fossil fuels, radio frequency radiation, and sustainable health care.
There are over 500,000 Registered Nurses in California. If we can harness our own power, we can help make the immense changes that we need right now to move humanity to a safer, healthier, and more equitable place. We have work to do!
