Stand Up For Clean Air

You can help protect our nation’s air quality. From reducing emissions to advocating for change, small actions can make a big, collective difference.

Why Clean Air Is Important

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Clean Air Act, and to celebrate, we're introducing the Stand Up For Clean Air initiative.

The air pollution we breathe can harm anyone's health, and climate change is making air quality worse.

That's why we're asking you to Stand Up For Clean Air.

Together, through collective action, we can all help improve air quality and address climate change.
