Silicon Valley Toxics Coalition (USA)

Silicon Valley Toxics Coalition is a diverse non-profit organization engaged in research, advocacy and grassroots organizing to promote human health and environmental justice in response to the rapid growth of the high-tech industry.

In 1982, groundwater contamination was discovered throughout Silicon Valley near high-tech manufacturing facilities. The Silicon Valley Toxics Coalition was created and composed of high-tech workers, community members, law enforcement, emergency workers and environmentalists. The Coalition pushed for and won legislation to inform the community and monitor further contamination. SVTC also lead the effort to bring in the EPA to identify 29 Superfund sites for immediate clean up. Today, SVTC continues its work to hold the industry accountable and shift it towards greater sustainability.
