Keeping our Communities Healthy: Environment
Pollution is prevalent in low and moderate income neighborhoods. Everyday we are exposed to air pollution, toxic waste and dirty water. We have more children and adults with asthma, lead poisoning, and other illnesses caused by a toxic environment in our communities. ACTION United supports strong climate legislation, including regulation of carbon emissions under the Clean Air Act, that will protect our air and climate and encourage green technology using the tools that we have at hand.
