Governor Proclamations Have Value Beyond Measure!

Health Impacts of Wood Smoke Devalues Real EstateHealth Impacts of Wood Smoke Devalues Real EstateHealth Impacts of Wood Smoke Devalues Real Estate

Multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) affects over 48 million men, women, and children of all races. Even though MCS is of widespread epidemic prevalence, public awareness of the toxicity of common environmental insults and ways to manage and accommodate MCS remains limited. Multiple Chemical Sensitivity Awareness Month, May 2013, brings us a great opportunity to work towards greater public awareness of MCS. 

Proclamations, an annual tradition in May, provide the opportunity for governors and mayors around the world to declare May as awareness month for multiple chemical sensitivity.   
These proclamations are an invaluable tool when working with schools, hospitals, health care professionals, workplaces, and public facilities to enact fragrance free policies and employ safer methods of cleaning and pest control. Many have reported greater success leading to positive change after presenting proclamations to these facilities.  
Now is the key time to begin assembling your May 2013 proclamation request for your governor or mayor to issue a proclamation for the month of May to support awareness, events, and activities during Multiple Chemical Sensitivity Awareness Month. All you need to do as a citizen in your state is to contact the official’s constituent affairs office and ask who to submit a proclamation request to. Then following up with that individual or department.  
MCS America provides a sample proclamation and cover letter which may be used to request a proclamation in your state. The sample proclamation request may be downloaded for editing and use at: 
We would like to thank you for any and all efforts towards increased awareness in your locality. We look forward to assisting you in any way we can. Working together, we can help America to take control of toxic chemicals and eradicate multiple chemical sensitivity!
