Who is the NTTC?

NTTC is an EPA Tribal Partnership Group established in January 2012, from a steering group established in 2011. The Council is focused on providing Tribes with an opportunity for greater input on issues related to toxic chemicals and pollution prevention, particularly ensuring Tribal consideration in the enactment of the Toxic Substance Control Act, TSCA.

At the National Tribal Toxics Council, we are committed to promoting environmental health and justice for tribal communities across the United States. Our work focuses on addressing the unique challenges faced by these communities in protecting their lands, waters, and natural resources from harmful pollutants and toxins.

Through collaborative research, policy advocacy, and community engagement, we strive to develop innovative solutions to complex environmental problems that are grounded in traditional ecological knowledge and cultural values. Our goal is to empower tribal communities to take a leadership role in shaping policies and practices that affect their health and well-being.

From addressing the impacts of climate change to advocating for stronger regulations on toxic chemicals, our work is guided by a deep respect for the sovereignty and self-determination of tribal nations. We are proud to work in partnership with tribal communities and organizations to create a cleaner, healthier, and more just future for all.
