We are 50 States United for Healthy Air, and we are members of your community: doctors, nurses, clergy, tribal leaders, parents and concerned citizens. 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 traveled to Washington, D.C. to send a powerful message: Everyone has a right to breathe clean, healthy air.
50 States United for Healthy Air
Meet Ambassadors from May 2011:
On May 2, 2011, doctors, nurses, faith and tribal leaders, social justice advocates and affected citizens from all 50 states convened in Washington, D.C. to send a powerful message: All Americans have a right to breathe clean, healthy air. Clean Air Ambassadors met with members of Congress and the Obama administration to speak out for strong protections against pollution that is harmful to our health. Industry lobbyists and their allies want to block these protections from taking effect. But our lives depend on clean air, and these ambassadors will demand that we get it.
