Air quality impacts a lot more than what you might think.
Noxious gasses and fumes contaminate the atmosphere every day, and the problem is getting worse — especially for Latinos and other minorities.
Current government policies are also making the problem worse through roll-back initiatives.
This year, the EPA is taking steps to reduce air pollution rules. These regulation reductions would give companies more room to emit higher levels of harmful substances. If enacted, those policies could expose more Americans to harm, causing greater long-term health impacts.
Let’s use #SaludTues on Twitter on Tuesday, June 11, 2019, to discuss why our air quality is so important and what everyone can do to make a difference in this issue:
- WHAT: #SaludTues Tweetchat: “Air Quality and Pollution”
- TIME/DATE: 1-2 p.m. ET (Noon-1 p.m. CT), Tuesday, June 11, 2019
- WHERE: On Twitter with hashtag #SaludTues
- HOST: @SaludAmerica
- CO-HOSTS: The Union of Concerned Scientists (@UCSUSA), Climate for Health (@Climate4Health), the Coalition for Clean Air (@CleanairCA), and Climate Mama (@CLIMATEMAMA).
