This is a photo of the local coal ash pile. The wind picks up and spreads this toxic dust all over our community. There’s also a high-hazard pond of coal ash slurry just 50 yards from our house. Sadly, we aren’t the only community in the country that is facing these environmental stresses and the corresponding cases of strange cancers and increased respiratory problems.

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.
