NTAA is happy to announce that Moms Clean Air Force has joined the NTAA family as an Associate Member! NTAA has established a partnership with Moms Clean Air Force – a community of over 1,000,000 moms and dads united against air pollution—including the urgent crisis of our changing climate—to protect our children’s health. They fight for Justice in Every Breath, recognizing the importance of equitable solutions in addressing air pollution and climate change. In collaboration with Moms, NTAA published a joint fact sheet that provides a summary of the air pollution impacts on Indigenous people. You can view the fact sheet here and be sure to check out the Facebook Live event held on Thursday, April 15 that was recorded and posted on Moms’ YouTube channel.
