Clean Air Ambassador | Cranston, Rhode Island

Sylvia Weber

I have been concerned and an active proponent of a healthy environment since 1960, and have been a member of the Sierra Club since 1970.

As a nurse, I see on a daily basis the harm created by our toxic environment—not only to people, but to all of life.

I represent the Rhode Island State Nurses Association on several environmental coalitions and testify at the State House on environmental bills that impact public health. I have also met with Rhode Island's senators and congressmen on environmental concerns.

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.
