Year Participated



Anchorage, AK


Alaska Community Action on Toxics (ACAT) is a progressive and diverse environmental/reproductive justice and health research and advocacy organization that engages individuals, tribes, and other communities throughout Alaska to advocate for the right to live in a health environment. We work at the nexus of environmental and reproductive justice and human rights. ACAT works for reproductive justice to prevent harm from exposures to toxic, endocrine disrupting, chemicals in our air, water, and food.

Driven by a core belief in environmental justice, ACAT empowers communities to eliminate exposure to toxics through collaborative research, shared science, education, organizing, and advocacy. Programmatic initiatives include: community-based participatory research, enacting protective environmental health and reproductive justice policies at the local to international levels, holding polluters accountable, defense against harmful proposed development projects, environmental health education and outreach, and food security.
