Breathless – 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.

 

Come meet all of the groups that fight to make a difference in your community every day, as well as the elected officials who can actually make a difference. 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 are unhealthy because of it. As a community, we are going to change this! Tickets are free, so get them now!
