Clean Air Ambassador: Pam Shelden

I grew up in mining country. I know what it feels like to breathe in "smelter smoke" and have it burn your throat. There was lots of cancer and breathing sickness in nearly every family. I have not found a way to get involved in fighting toxic poisoning, until now. I want officials in Washington, D.C. to help us create jobs while cleaning our air and our land.
