CAC's Southwest Pennsylvania Neighbors for Clean Air

The goal of the Southwest PA Neighbors for Clean Air initiative is to create 100 neighborhood groups of 10 members throughout the region so that residents can learn about and take action on the most pressing environmental issues in Southwest Pennsylvania. In the nine months since the first leader training session, CAC has trained over 80 group leaders, and 20 groups now meet regularly. Contact Dave Smith ([email protected]) to join a group or find out more information.
