How Your Support Matters

To better represent the important work Team ADAO has accomplished over the years, this 2018 Impact Graphic showcases our progress and strengths in words, numbers, and graphics.

Linda says, “I’m sharing this because I am proud of what we’ve done — and you should be too. We are who we are because of YOU. Our powerful and diverse community consists of asbestos victims, scientists, trade unions, public health advocates, donors, and sponsors, who have and continue to generously give time and dollars to fund ADAO’s education, advocacy, and community support efforts.”
