Keiki First: Rally for Historic Pesticide Regulation

  • Hawaii State Capitol 415 South Beretania Street Honolulu, HI, 96813 United States (map)

Hawaiʻi could make history by being the first state to ban chlorpyrifos for outdoor use. We're rallying in support of SB3095 SD1 HD1 with grassroots lobbying to follow from 2 - 3pm. 

The current draft of this bill includes: 1) mandatory disclosure 2) no spray zones around schools and 3) a ban on the use of the neurotoxin chlorpyrifos. 

Chlorpyrifos is known to cause permanent neurological damage to fetuses and childrenʻs developing brains, even at very low levels. The EPA was poised to ban chlorpyrifos for outdoor use prior to the Trump administration. It was banned for indoor use in 2001. 

Join us on April 9th to let our legislator's know that our communities need greater protection from dangerous pesticides and the basic right to know what we are exposed to.
