In recognition of National Asbestos Awareness Week, Ban Asbestos Now! asked its supporters to submit pictures and videos that “put a face to the BAN cause” to be included in a public service announcement (PSA). The images could be anything – from advocates working to raise awareness about the dangers of asbestos exposure, to fundraising events for mesothelioma treatments, to pictures of patients bravely battling asbestos-related diseases.
Now, after the contributions of many BAN community members, we’re proud to present our final 15-second PSA. Thanks to the support of Sokolove Law (the sponsors of the Ban Asbestos Now advocacy program) this video will be airing through the end of National Asbestos Awareness Week (April 1 – April 7, 2011) on YouTube channels including health, news, and law & government for the larger public to see.
This is just the beginning of our efforts to raise awareness about the fight to ban asbestos on a national scale. We still need your help! There are many ways to help, especially during this important week. You can find more quick, easy ways to make a difference in this fight here.
Together, we can make our voices heard and BAN!
