News: Public Health Groups Team Up To Fight Air Pollution & Protect Public Health

On Monday, February 29, 2016, Mothers & Others for Clean Air joined Moms Clean Air Force NC, Medical Advocates for Healthy Air and Clean Air Carolina in announcing a new, collaborative effort—the Healthy Air Alliance of North Carolina (HAANC). The Alliance will provide North Carolina’s citizens, media, medical professionals and policy makers with access to the latest research and analysis on how proposed public policies could impact public health.

HAANC’s goal is to build a statewide network to elevate the voices of families dealing with the daily health impacts of air pollution and the public health professionals who work with them in order to advocate for better air quality and healthier communities. The Alliance is calling for strong public policies that reduce air pollution to protect public health, including protecting North Carolina’s Clean Smokestacks Act and the Clean Air Act, and promoting clean renewable energy development.
