Healthcare practitioners are witnesses with a unique perspective. We need you to support them in listening to people in need, connecting the dots on climate and air pollution impacts to our health, and informing representatives working to shape public policy.
Listening and storytelling help healers connect science and stories to heal communities.
The mission of Mothers and Others for Clean Air is to protect children’s health by reducing the impacts of air pollution and climate change throughout the Southeast. Mothers & Others For Clean Air creates partnerships between scientists, healthcare providers, parents, teachers, youth, and organizations to facilitate collective learning and action in the southeast. Clean, healthy air is essential to good health. When you can’t breathe, nothing else matters. Laura Turner-Seydel and Stephanie Blank, two well-known Atlanta, Georgia moms concerned about the air their children and others were breathing, joined forces to do something about it. Laura and Stephanie, along with North Carolina-based MOCA Director Veronica Butcher, believe that education is a powerful tool for making changes to public policies to improve the quality of the air we breathe.
