Fighting For Air With The American Lung Association

For nearly half of our history, the American Lung Association has battled air pollution. We fight because dirty air harms our health and can threaten life itself. We fight to protect the Clean Air Act and to require the clean-up of coal-fired power plants.

Now in our second century, the American Lung Association leads the way to save lives, improve lung health and prevent lung disease. The American Lung Association is fighting for air through research, education and advocacy.
