Healthy Air Campaign

We advocate for strong policies to clean up air pollution and curb climate change.

Imagine a future where every child has clean, safe air to breathe. The United States has made great progress in cleaning up air pollution thanks to strong clean air laws. But too many communities still have dangerous levels of pollution in the air they breathe, putting kids at risk of asthma attacks and long-term lung damage. And climate change is creating unprecedented challenges for air quality. We all need to push for policies in Washington, DC that curb climate change and achieve clean air for all.
