Join us in demanding that the Bay Area Air Quality Management District addresses the cumulative and inequitable impacts of toxic air pollution that hits hardest on low-income and working class communities of color.

Low-income, people of color and immigrants are disproportionately exposed to toxic air pollution and its associated health risks.

BAEHC is demanding that the District adopt our proposed Pollution Reduction Protocol, which calls for an end to new pollution and implementation of pollution reduction plans in overburdened communities.

Recently, the District proposed regulatory changes that were a step in the right direction and would have created stricter air pollution thresholds in highly impacted communities.

However, after pressure from industry forces who demanded to conduct "business as usual," the District withdrew their proposal for more health-protective standards in the communities most impacted by pollution.

We need your support. Here's what you can do to help:
(1) Add your organization's name to our sign-on letter. (View the browser version here).

(2) Mobilize with us for the upcoming Air District meetings on Dec. 2nd and Dec. 16th at 9:30 am at 939 Ellis St. in San Francisco (near Van Ness) in San Francisco.

(3) Call the Air District Board Member who should be representing you. Tell them to protect community health by adopting BAEHC's Pollution Reduction Protocol and creating additional health-protective standards for communities most impacted by pollution.

It's time to speak up loud and clear...
No more business as usual!
Stop the pollution in our communities!
