50 States United for Healthy Air: 2013 Event: Experience
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. When our elected officials stand in the way of clean air and water—it’s time to shake things up. Which is why more than a hundred physicians, tribal and labor leaders, clergy, nurses and parents were in our nation’s capital May 13–15, 2013—united as 50 States United for Healthy Air.
The Event: 50 States United
For three days in May 2013, a fierce army of more than one hundred Clean Air Ambassadors invaded the nation's capital to ask our elected officials for something very simple: Restore our right to breathe clean air.
