About The Video
In May 2013, doctors, nurses, clergy, labor advocates and community activists traveled from every state to Washington, D.C. to meet with their elected officials and tell their stories of why clean air is important.
Phillip Bautista, a registered nurse from California, works in one of the nation's most polluted cities. Everyday, he sees patients struggling to breathe due to bad air quality. Phillip was one of the Ambassadors, and this is his story.
About The People
A coalition of health, environmental, faith and advocacy groups brought 117 Clean Air Ambassadors from the frontlines of fighting air pollution in their communities, to the halls of Congress.
