We live in the city of Atlanta. While I absolutely love where we live, there is one thing that really bothers me about this city. There are many, many nights we go outside and we cannot see the stars. Traffic in this city causes such a large amount of pollution that I can often not see the stars in the sky and this means that neither can my children. It makes me sad because we live in such an amazing city but the air here is not great. Care about clean air? Clean Air Moms Pledge to Vote on November 8 #CleanAirMomsVote.

As moms we care deeply about protecting the health of our children and grandchildren. It’s our job to stand up for our children. Harmful pollution, climate change and toxic chemicals are putting our precious children at risk. It doesn’t have to be this way.

I want to live in a city where going outside and looking at the stars with my children is something easy to do. I don’t want to have to travel 30+ minutest to see a clear sky. No one should have to live like that. Now is the time to take a stand and fight for the clean air that we desperately need for our families.

Did you know that on election day your vote can elect candidates who care about these issues?

CLEAN AIR. Air pollution from fossil fuels leads to bad air quality in too many communities. Increases in smog can trigger asthma attacks and exacerbate other chronic health problems. Do not let your child’s health be voted away to protect polluters’ profits. Instead, VOTE to protect little lungs from toxic air pollution.

CLIMATE CHANGE. The same harmful pollution that is making our children sick is causing rising temperatures and extreme weather events. Our changing climate is making smog worse. It increases respiratory health threats, particularly for people with allergies and asthma. Also intense heat waves exacerbate heart and lung conditions. VOTE for candidates who support proposals to cut methane emissions from the oil and gas industry. And vote to put our country on a clean energy path while protecting American jobs!

TOXIC CHEMICALS. Dangerous chemicals are found in our daily lives. They often enter our homes and bodies without our realizing it. In fact, these chemicals may not even have been disclosed, identified or studied. Thousands of toxic chemicals found in everyday products are linked to potential reproductive and developmental toxicity, endocrine disruption, birth defects, cancer, asthma, headaches and skin irritants. Children are among the most vulnerable to such chemicals.

Clean Air Moms

The upcoming election has been dominated by divisive candidate issues, but there’s one thing that we all should be able to agree on: harmful pollution, climate change, and toxic chemicals are putting our families at risk — and it doesn’t have to be that way!

This fall Clean Air Moms Action is traveling the country with a documentary film crew capturing the stories of parents who are fighting daily to protect their children’s health effects of exposure to oil & gas productions, high-tide flood waters, and ground water contamination from coal ash waste sites.

  1. Clean Air Moms sounds like a great group.
    I can see their cause as being virtuous.

  2. Kristin

    With all of the smog in LA it’s hard to have good air quality around here. Our family has done our part by switching to an electric vehicle. Hopefully more people do the same and try to save the future of our children.

  3. Considering that my husband manages an emissions company, clean air is extremely important to us. I want to leave our planet in the best condition possible for my children and grandchildren!

  4. Catherine S

    We lived in the city and we could never see the stars. About two a years ago we moved about 30 minutes outside of town. We can now see more stars and my asthma is better.

  5. Pam

    Clean air is so important. Our city is cleaning up its act but I think we could all do better.

  6. I don’t live in a big city, and even I can’t see the stars most nights. Clean air is such an important issue, one that our elected officials need to take seriously!

  7. Sounds like a really great and important initiative. I will definitely be glad to be a part of it.

  8. victoria

    This is great and im sure all of us want this so I surely be grateful and glad to be a part! 🙂

  9. The power of moms is very strong. When we all ban together and commit ourselves to making life better for our children we can do great things.

  10. That’s terrible that you cant see the stars at night, I didn’t realize it was like that in major cities. I will definitely be voting for cleaner air, we can all come together for better things!

  11. Jeanine

    Wow can’t see stars at night? Thats like it is here. Can’t see anything and it makes me so sad. Where I grew up the sky was full of them. 

  12. I cant believe that you cant see the beautiful sky due to all of the bad pollution in the air. I will be joining you to vote for cleaner air for the future of us and our children!

  13. Sounds like a great campaign! I love that you have an active group ready to support this!

  14. I live in Atlanta as well. I am often amazed at all the pollution and would also like to see the stars.

  15. I don’t live in Atlanta but am grateful that we don’t live in a big enough city that we can’t see the stars. I can imagine how frustrating that would be.

  16. Having lived in the city all my life makes me sometimes wonder, “what exactly is clean air?” LOL. I think it is about time that we take care of our environment. Just think about the kind of world our children will inherit if we don’t take steps to clean it up now.

  17. Reesa Lewandowski

    It is scary how dirty the air we breathe is!!!

  18. Thank you so much for sharing this information. The air we breathe and our environment is one of the most important legacies we will leave our children. Thanks for this information. I will be sharing with my mom friends!

  19. Ann Bacciaglia

    We really need to do everything we can to clean up our planet. It is so sad the condition we have let it get to.

  20. What a nice initiative to be part of. Clean air is important and it’s definitely going to improve our and our children’s health. I would love to be a part of it.

  21. What a great initiative! I am also from Atlanta, although we don’t live there any longer. My daughter does, and I hate the traffic every time we go back for a visit. I don’t miss it here in Tennessee!
