Join us in Clairton, Pa. forBreathless: An Air Quality Expo

Breathless - An Air Quality Expo, is a fun and free event where your entire family can learn about air pollution in the region, and learn how to reduce it so that we can all breathe just a bit easier.

Meet members of local groups that fight to make a difference in your community every day, as well as the elected officials who can have an impact. There will be free food, activities, and presentations from advocacy, citizen science, and public health experts. 

The Mon Valley has some of the worst air quality in the United States, and many of its residents suffer health consequences as a result. As a community, we can make a change!
