Logo: 50 States United for Healthy Air - We Breathe as One.

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.


50 STATES UNITED FOR HEALTHY AIR, held during May 13–16, 2013, is a citizens lobbying event bringing together more than a hundred concerned members of the public from all fifty states, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia to Washington, D.C.

The 2013 event is coordinated in partnership with the American Nurses Association (ANA), Earthjustice, Hip Hop Caucus, Labor Council for Latin American Advancement (LCLAA), National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), National Council of Churches (NCC), National Latino Coalition on Climate Change (NLCCC) and Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR).

A 50 STATES UNITED FOR HEALTHY AIR event was held on May 2–5, 2011.
