Lyndsay MoseleyThe American Lung Association is pleased to announce that Lyndsay Moseley will lead the organization’s Healthy Air Campaign – a national effort to help protect and uphold the Clean Air Act – as Campaign Director.

“We are delighted that Lyndsay will be leading the Healthy Air Campaign,” said Harold P. Wimmer National President and CEO of the American Lung Association. “The Campaign is critical to helping protect our health and the health of our children. Lyndsay’s deep knowledge of the issues and rich history with this vital public health effort make her ideal to lead the charge.”

Moseley previously served the Campaign as Deputy Director and Director of Advocacy for more than two years, during which time she helped oversee campaign activities including collaboration with health and medical partners, and serving as lead advocate for the Campaign.

"The American Lung Association does so much to protect our lungs and our air," said Dan Dolan-Laughlin, a volunteer and advocate for the Lung Association who has undergone a double-lung transplant and testified publicly on healthy air issues. "It is extraordinarily rewarding to work with a committed professional like Lyndsay and to be part of this historic organization’s important, growing and successful fight for clean air, and a healthier future.” 

Moseley has a long history of working on public health and environmental issues. Before joining the American Lung Association, Moseley most recently served as the Washington Representative for Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal Campaign, working to address climate change and reduce pollution from coal-plants such as mercury and air toxics and coal ash. Additionally, she was the coordinator for the National Religious Partnership for the Environment’s interfaith climate and energy campaign, and a researcher at the Energy, Environment and Resources Center at the University of Tennessee, and has published numerous reports, articles, and commentaries on related issues.

Moseley said: “We’ve come a long way in the fight for healthy air, but there is plenty of work left to be done to protect public health. We will continue defending healthy air protections against polluters and their friends in Congress, and continue to push the Administration and the states to strengthen clean air protections, including reducing pollution from power plants.”
