50 States United For Healthy Air

50 States United for Healthy Air

Meet Ambassadors from May 2011:

On May 2, 2011, doctors, nurses, faith and tribal leaders, social justice advocates and affected citizens from all 50 states convened in Washington, D.C. to send a powerful message: All Americans have a right to breathe clean, healthy air. Clean Air Ambassadors met with members of Congress and the Obama administration to speak out for strong protections against pollution that is harmful to our health. Industry lobbyists and their allies want to block these protections from taking effect. But our lives depend on clean air, and these ambassadors will demand that we get it.
