Think Before You Pink: Breast Cancer Action

Sunday, October 28th, 2018

I donate to one cancer organization: BREAST CANCER ACTION, especially their Think Before You Pink campaign, which calls out companies like Ford, who runs the Warriors in Pink program. BCA says this actually distracts from the truth, because the exhaust from Ford’s vehicles increases the risk of breast cancer. Breast Cancer Action sent me this postcard with the information and call actions like these from big corporations: pinkwashing.


Breast Cancer Action (BCA)  is asking us to tell Ford to stop making vehicles with cancer-causing exhaust and make the shift to a zero emissions fleet.

BCA invites us to online action. Go to

BCAs snail mail address is: 275 Fifth St., Suite 307, San Francisco, CA 94103

P.S. We own a Ford Fusion Hybrid and I plan to write to Ford to see if our car falls into this category.
