Our Values

We imagine a world where every person has an equal opportunity to breathe clean air, drink safe water, eat healthy food, and live and work in toxic-free homes, buildings, and communities that are safe and healthy.

Our values shape our work and are the foundation in which we ground what we do. 

TRUST/INTEGRITY: We deliver and ground our work in the highest quality science, act in the public interest, and hold ourselves accountable. 

JUSTICE: We fight for the most vulnerable and seek to transform the systems that result in toxic pollution disproportionately impacting Black, Brown, and Indigenous populations.

ACCOUNTABILITY: We hold corporations accountable for pollution and demand governments protect the health of people and the environment. 

EMPOWERMENT: We activate and empower people in fighting for government and corporate policies and actions that prevent pollution.

TRANSPARENCY: We insist that officials and corporations disclose their actions, positions, and agendas. We are upfront and honest about our agenda, position, and use of funds. 

RIGHT TO HEALTH: Everyone has an equal right to live a healthy life. Our bodies, homes, air, water, food, communities, and workplaces should be clean, safe, and not polluted.

COLLABORATION: We foster a culture of collaboration among our staff and organizational partners. We support and partner with diverse organizations and communities.

Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Toxic-Free Future believes that everyone has a right to be healthy and thrive in clean environments regardless of where they live or work, and without regard to race, gender, income, or ethnicity.

We are creating an organization that supports all peoples and communities and are committed to eliminating systemic racism by:

  •  Including environmental justice concerns throughout our program strategies
  •  Incorporating DEI practices into partnerships
  • Updating management policies to ensure we create a supportive environment that attracts, nurtures, and retains staff that will reflect the organizational diversity we seek
