Can We Breathe

Can We Breathe? Taking Action on Clean Air for Our Communities

The "Can We Breathe?" campaign is a community-driven initiative tackling air pollution in our neighborhoods. We're working to identify the biggest threats to our air quality and empower residents to take action for a healthier future.

Here's how we're making a difference:

  • Monitoring What Matters: We're deploying air quality sensors throughout the community to track pollution levels for two years. This data will pinpoint the most concerning pollutants and their sources.

  • Understanding the Risks: In the second phase, we'll delve deeper, analyzing the specific types of air toxins present. This will help us understand the health impacts on our community.

  • Turning Data into Action: We'll use the collected data to pinpoint pollution sources and assess their health risks. This information will be the foundation for advocating for stricter regulations and holding polluters accountable.


Building a Culture of Clean Air:

This campaign goes beyond just data collection. We're committed to building a community equipped to understand and address air pollution:

  • Community Education: We'll share our findings in clear, accessible ways, empowering residents to track air quality in their own neighborhoods.

  • Sensor Loan Library: A library of air quality sensors will be available for residents to borrow, allowing them to measure pollution levels in their own backyards.

  • STEM Education for Action: A special curriculum focused on air pollution will be developed for students. This program will help them understand air quality issues and identify solutions to reduce their exposure.

Protecting Our Communities:

Living near industrial areas can pose specific air pollution risks. We'll work with residents and students to develop an emergency preparedness plan. This plan will:

  • Identify early warning signs of air pollution events.

  • Educate residents on the associated health risks.

  • Equip the community with strategies to respond to air quality emergencies.

Join the Movement:

The "Can We Breathe?" campaign is about empowering our community to take charge of their air quality. By working together, we can create a healthier environment for everyone. Stay tuned for updates on how you can get involved!
