Our Story

Never underestimate the power and love of a mother – then multiply that by two and you’ve got a force to reckon with.

Laura Turner Seydel and Stephanie Blank, two well-known Atlanta moms concerned about the air their children and others were breathing, joined forces to do something about it. Determined to lead citizens into taking action, Laura and Stephanie founded Mothers & Others for Clean Air (M&O) in 2004.

Given their roles as caregivers, community leaders and family stewards, Laura and Stephanie believe that education is a powerful tool for making changes to public policies to improve the quality of the air we breathe.
