The Right To Breathe

Every time you blow out a candle, every time you blow a bubble, you declare the right to breathe. Air pollution threatens that right. The Clean Air Act defends it. Everyone has the right to breathe.

The Right to Breathe

Clean air should be a fundamental right. Every year, many Americans young and old get sick because of air pollution. Thousands die. 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. Not a decade from now. Now. We will raise our voices to demand immediate action, because every American has the right to breathe.

Defending Our Right To Breathe

Air pollution protections will not only save lives, but will also help to curb extreme weather events.

Take a breath. Does the air feel fresh? Clean? If so, be thankful, because that isn’t always the case. For more than 40 years, the Clean Air Act has fostered steady progress in reducing air pollution, allowing Americans to breathe easier and live healthier. But for many, air pollution still remains a public health threat.

Today, many of the protective standards have become outdated or are years overdue. Everyone has the right to breathe clean air. But we all need to fight for it. Send your letter today
