Cancer-Causing Substances in Air and Water

General Resolution

WHEREAS, safe air to breathe and safe water to drink are essential to life;


  1. That the 1976 General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association strongly urges that the federal Environmental Protection Agency adopt promptly standards and regulations that will minimize the discharge of cancer-causing substances into our air and water; and
  2. That this resolution be conveyed to the appropriate agencies in Canada, the President of the United States, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Chairmen of the Environment Committees of the Senate and the House of the US Congress; and
  3. That individual societies and their members contact their Senators and Representatives as well as state and local health and environmental departments and their local water and sewer authorities; and
  4. That the Canadian Unitarian Council be requested to make similar representations to appropriate government levels in Canada.
