Speak up Against Pollution to the Environmental Protection Agency
Jan 30, 2015 09:08AM
When we breathe smog, we get more asthma, more heart failure, more chronic bronchitis, more respiratory infections, more hospital visits and more missed school days. Children are among the worst affected. Smog interferes with their lung development and triggers asthma. Smog forms when industrial emissions from power plants, factories, cars and other sources react with heat and sunlight. The EPA needs to hear from families—not just polluters—about the importance of protecting everyone’s lungs.
Anyone can obtain a five-minute slot to testify by contacting EPA’s Eloise Shepherd at 919-541- 5507 or [email protected] If you would like resources to testify, Moms Clean Air Force (MCAF), can provide advice and materials. Also, MCAF will hold a rally and all concerned families can join.
For more information about testifying, resources or the rally, contact Julie Hantman at [email protected] for info. Location for the hearing is: William Jefferson Clinton East Building, Room 1153, 1301 Constitution Ave. NW Washington, D.C.
