People Concerned About Chemical Safety (PCACS) is a community organization in the Kanawha Valley that has been active in community affairs for over 25 years. Dedicated to the protection of health and safety of all who reside, work, and study in the vicinity of chemical facilities, we promote environmental justice and chemical safety through education and advocacy.

Following the January 9th Elk River chemical leak, we successfully organized citizen action efforts to protect drinking water that led to the strongest piece of environmental legislation in West Virginia history. We successfully initiated a process to implement Chemical Safety Board recommendations outstanding from a 2008 explosion at the BayerCropScience-Institute, WV facility.
