I grew up breathing the fresh air of the country. My wish is that all of us can breathe that kind of clean air on a daily basis.

Clean Air Ambassador | Greensboro, North Carolina

Terence Muhammad

Clean air is extremely important to me because it may sound simple, but I need it to breathe. It's not that complicated for me. Or really for anybody else. We need it to live.

As a Clean Air Ambassador, I'm responsible for telling the story of others—personal, often painful, stories that will hopefully lead to change for the better. I’m also responsible for telling those who have that power, our representatives, to make these changes a reality—the importance of acting now to resolve the issues of clean air and climate change. All they have to do is watch and study the weather to see what must be done. Time is running out.

Our legislators have got to start listening and responding appropriately to the demands and concerns of the people over the greed of the Big money companies. This is about more than money; this is about justice. And I am will keep fighting for justice for all.

Clean air is extremely important to me because it may sound simple, but I need it to breathe. It's not that complicated for me. Or really for anybody else. We need it to live.

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.
