My Clean Air Story

Share #MyCleanAirStory on social media to tell us why you care about clean air. Together we'll Stand Up For Clean Air by raising our collective voices to highlight why clean air matters.

Air pollution isn't always visible, but the risks it poses to lung health are very real. So whether you like to bike or run, live near a highway or power plant, or worry about how climate change is impacting your community, join us in making visible why clean air matters to you.

Join the American Lung Association to share your #MyCleanAirStory, and together, we will champion clean air for all.
