Air Quality Board fails San Jose residents

"It's real easy to talk about all these economic costs," said SWOP organizer Juan Reynosa. "Go look at these communities and see what the actual cost is to the community."
Read more from KOAT's report on last week's Air Quality Board meeting. Although the Board acknowledged the problems and intersection of environmental pollution and social justice, they ultimately declined to hold a hearing to consider our ordinance to study the cumulative impacts of air pollution in Albuquerque.

Sign the Petition: Clean Air for Albuquerque

Our families deserve clean air.

Air pollution from multiple sources creates what are called cumulative impacts.  For instance, your neighborhood could experience pollution all at once from refineries, diesel trains and trucks, and chemical companies.  Such pollution from multiple sources can impact your community’s health and quality of life.
