No child should have to grow up like this. As a pastor, I am advocating for clean air in rural and urban communities to protect children and families.
Clean Air Ambassador | Fairfield, Alabama
Clean Air is important to me because I have two young children who suffer from allergies and other respiratory diseases.
I am motivated because of my role as a church leader and those who are in the minority. I am inspired by our forefathers and foremothers who fought injustice. I would like to see our president and legislators draft legislation that will aggressively address the issue of climate change and clean air, and if I get a chance to sit face to face with my senator, I would ask them if they had children or grandchildren, and if they do, I would then ask them if they wanted them to have clean air to breathe.
When I come to D.C., I expect to be able to convince my representatives of the need to be mindful of the millions of American citizens who are negatively affected by the air we breathe. I am very thankful and humbled to be a Clean Air Ambassador.

50 States United For Healthy Air
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 are sending a powerful message: Everyone has a right to breathe clean, healthy air.
It’s time Congress and the EPA used their ears to help our lungs.
