Take Action Against J&J to Protect Women’s Health GloballyFeatured
In May 2020, Johnson & Johnson (J&J) announced it would stop selling talc-based baby powder—which is linked to ovarian cancer—in the US and Canada. However, J&J plans to allow retailers to sell existing inventory until it runs out—and will continue to sell its baby powder globally, which will negatively impact Black and Brown communities around the world. This is environmental racism.
Over 200 organizations from around the world, including HEJSupport, have joined Black Women for Wellness in demanding Johnson & Johnson commit to fully removing its talc-based baby powder from the global market, and end the company’s targeted marketing to Black and Brown women and other historically marginalized communities.
