“I’m amazed by how you can make a difference in your own life and the lives of others by modeling change, affecting change. Opportunities present themselves to all of us—our name is on some moment, and we can either choose to step up and do something or we walk away...Things get better when we step up.”- Jeanne Rizzo
“To me, it’s a core, basic social justice issue: protecting our health from the assault by toxic chemicals in the environment.”- Jeanne Rizzo
