I’ve had the pleasure of working with Moms Clean Air Force for several years, supporting their mission to protect our right to clean air. MCAF is a community of moms and dads united against air pollution – including the urgent crisis of our changing climate – to protect our children’s health.
This Spring offers two unique ways to support their mission.
The new joyful and empowering book, Every Breath We Take, is a positive, life-affirming look at clean air, with a subtle message about how air can be dirtied — and how it can be cleaned up. Written by Moms Clean Air Force Senior Director, Dominique Browning, a New York Times writer and author, and Maya Ajmera, the Founder of The Global Fund for Children. Every Breath we Take includes a foreword by actress and Moms Clean Air Force spokeswoman, Julianne Moore.
A portion of the proceeds from the sales of this book will be donated to Moms Clean Air Force, a national movement of over a half million moms, dads, and grandparents who are protecting the right of every child to breathe clean air. The book is now available for pre-order on Amazon.
Celebrate Earth Day at the Run for Clean Air: Saturday, April 16, 2016
Moms Clean Air Force also offers the opportunity to take part in a wonderful local race here in Philadelphia. In fact, the Run for Clean Air was my very first 5K back in 2012 – and now I am doing the 10K!
For the past 35 years, Clean Air Council has held the Run for Clean Air in Philadelphia to celebrate Earth Day. The Run for Clean Air is one of the region’s longest-running charity races and its largest Earth Day event. It has grown to 2,500 registrants, become a certified green event, and in 2015 added 10K distance. Located on the beautiful banks of the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia, the Run is a celebration of sustainable and healthy neighborhoods, clean air, and improvements in the region’s overall environmental health. Year after year, sponsors, volunteers, runners, walkers, and their families choose to celebrate Earth Day with Clean Air Council.
