We are 50 STATES UNITED FOR HEALTHY AIR: doctors, nurses, clergy, tribal leaders, parents and concerned citizens. And we are tired of our bodies and our environment being used as the dumping grounds for dirty industry.

Everyone has the right to breathe clean, healthy air.

We are 50 STATES UNITED FOR HEALTHY AIR: doctors, nurses, clergy, tribal leaders, parents and concerned citizens. And we are tired of our bodies and our environment being used as the dumping grounds for dirty industry.

CLEAN AIR AMBASSADORS went to Washington, D.C. to ask our elected officials for something very simple: restore our right to breathe clean air. We are calling for strong standards to clean our air and limit COAL ASH, AIR POLLUTION, and CARBON POLLUTION.

Fighting for Clean Air in DC

50 States United for Healthy Air

Clean air should be a fundamental right. Air pollution causes asthma attacks, lung disease, and even death. But our bodies don't have to be the dumping ground for dirty industries.

The technology to dramatically reduce harmful air pollution is available today, and major polluters should be required to use it.

Clean Air Ambassadors from every state are sending a powerful message: Everyone has a right to breathe clean, healthy air.

It’s time Congress and the EPA used their ears to help our lungs.
