2013 Ambassador Photo Post: 

The photo that I am holding is of a young girl who must use a respirator because of lung disease caused by air pollution. My own family has been impacted by air pollution as well—my mother struggles with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Clean air is for the common good—we all benefit from it, and deserve nothing less.

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.
