This is a photo of the outflow of the Colorado River, a sad ending to a truly mighty and marvelous river. I’m working to protect this great river and sacred lands of the Yoreme Mayo from poorly planned development projects.

Clean Air Ambassador | Chula Vista, California

Carlos Pelayo

My people are Yoreme Mayo, and I am President of the Labor Council for Latin American Advancement - San Diego & Imperial Counties, delegate to the San Diego and Imperial Counties Labor Council, Executive Director of Peace & Dignity Project, and participant in the Colorado River Tribes effort to protect the Colorado River and the destruction of our sacred lands and sacred sites from mining and from ill planned green energy projects.

I am active in building for a Mother Earth Day Summit to bring together a diversity of environmental activists and organizations from the region, including from below the U.S.-Mexico border, to establish a region wide agenda to work against environmental degradation.

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.
