What do we know about the air we breathe?
The involvement of citizens in air pollution monitoring is essential to identifying and addressing environmental disparities in low-income neighborhoods.
Learn how community air monitoring can be a valuable tool to identify possible hot spots. New, relatively low-cost tools are now available to not only tell you about air quality but also to provide reliable data to use with decision makers, elected officials, and polluting entities, to achieve cleaner air and protect those most susceptible to pollution. These handheld tools can easily provide extensive data and pollution mapping, including sharing data online.
Marilyn Wall, a long time Sierra Club volunteer, will present information about an air monitoring program underway in our area and how Faith Communities Go Green can help engage in collecting data, talking to decision makers, protecting vulnerable people (children, elderly, those living with respiratory issues, etc.) from pollution, and making the environment safer for all of us. Marilyn has worked with communities in the greater Cincinnati area on air and water pollution for many years. Developing and assisting community-led projects has led to significant pollution reductions locally.
Faith Communities Go Green partners with religious communities to create a more sustainable and equitable future for all by mobilizing their moral voice to reduce the risk of catastrophic climate change.
