Overview
To protect public health, the EPA has proposed new regulations to limit pollution from power plants and other sources. While fossil fuel-based companies and their allies are vigorously attacking EPA, the American Lung Association puts a human face on the issue and changes the narrative to one of support for healthy air. This renewal grant will allow the Association, one of the most prominent U.S. public health organizations, to continue its work in support of clean air, climate action, and strong EPA regulations to protect public health.

for the Healthy Air Campaign  
The Healthy Air Campaign mobilizes large numbers of health experts and advocates at state and national levels to support policies that protect public health and address carbon pollution from power plants. The campaign gives voice to those whose lives are impacted by air pollution; debunks polluters’ false narrative that we must choose between protecting public health and our economy; and recruits high-profile leadership to draw attention to the health impacts of climate change — including worsened air quality, longer and hotter heat waves, more frequent and intense wildfires, and spread of diseases.
