Be an Advocate

The American Lung Association envisions a world free from lung disease. To make our vision a reality, we promote lung health and prevent lung disease through public policy.  Our advocacy work promotes legislation that strengthens tobacco prevention and control, clean air quality, asthma management and other lung health causes.
