Learn more about the SSFL toxic/nuclear waste site

Over 30 kids in our community have rare types of cancer. We need your help to find out if your child is also at risk. If you live in Thousand Oaks, Simi Valley, West Hills, Calabasas, Chatsworth, or the surrounding areas, you live within 20 miles from the Santa Susana Field Lab's nuclear meltdown that is still reactive and toxic. The Department of Energy says their research shows there's no risk to our community and therefore can do a less extensive cleanup of the site. No child cancer studies have been done, but we know of 30 kids with absurdly rare cancers who live in our community. The DOE says the area is safe. The cancers prove otherwise. We need you to contact DOE and let them know you want more research done (an assessment of pediatric cancers with a 20 mile radius) and/or a full clean up of the site. You must contact DOE before March 14th. If not, they will move forward with a limited cleanup and we will be left always worrying about our kids.
