WHO WE ARE:
Americans for Responsible Technology is a voluntary association of hundreds of organizations across the United States that share science-based health concerns regarding the rapid proliferation of new wireless communications technologies.
Our mission is to educate the public about the human health and environmental risks associated with exposure to wireless radiation and to influence public policy at all levels of government consistent with our founding principles.
OUR FOUNDING PRINCIPLES
We believe in science. Independent, peer-reviewed and published science unencumbered by industry influence is critical to decision-making that is in the best interests of the people.
We believe in policies that evolve with science. Scientific thought changes as new discoveries are made and old hypotheses are disproved. Government agencies must ensure that policies are updated as science evolves.
We believe we have a moral obligation to protect the next generation. Our children depend on us, and on government leaders, to protect their health, safety, security and well-being, and to place this obligation above all others.
We believe in local control over the deployment of technology in our neighborhoods. Americans elect local leaders to represent their interests and respond to the unique needs and aesthetics of each community.
We reject the rush to roll out 5G technology across America.
This effort is based on outdated science. It is unwarranted and dangerous, eviscerates local control and places the interests of a single industry ahead of those of the American people.
We call on our representatives in Washington to heed the call of independent scientists, medical professionals and public health experts around the world who are warning of the dangers of this technology, and to reject any proposal to use public funds or public property to facilitate the deployment of expanded wireless networks.
