Alaska Community Action on Toxics

About Us

We believe everyone has a right to clean air, clean water, and toxic-free 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.

How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference

Since 1997, Alaska Community Action on Toxics has successfully advanced local, state, and international action to protect Alaskan families from harmful chemical exposures and safeguard our air, water, and food. ACAT helps communities throughout Alaska identify toxic chemicals to which they are being exposed and the health problems associated with those chemicals. ACAT works to phase out and replace chemicals that are persistent, bio-accumulative, and harmful to health with safe alternatives. ACAT also supports reduction, reuse, and recycling to decrease the detrimental impact of waste disposal. ACAT's organic gardening project helps Alaskans grow food without chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides. ACAT works with the Alaska Run for Women to provide information about breast cancer prevention and action women can take to reduce their risks. In recognition of the special vulnerability of children to environmental toxics and the disproportionate exposure of Arctic populations to persistent organic pollutants, children's environmental health is a priority for ACAT.
