Sign Up for the Atlanta Hearing to Protect Our Air and Our Health!

Each year coal plants pour millions of tons of harmful pollution into our air, worsening asthma, causing heart attacks, emergency room visits and missed work days. That pollution doesn't stop at county or even state lines, and as a result people throughout the country are forced to breathe unhealthy air.

But the EPA's proposed Good Neighbor Rule can change that by reducing air pollution escaping across state lines -- preventing at least 23,000 heart attacks, 26,000 hospital visits and 240,000 asthma attacks while saving $100 to $290 billion in health care costs, according to EPA estimates.

Join us at an EPA hearing on September 1st in Atlanta as we stand up to industry pressure and show that Americans support the EPA's work to protect our health by protecting the air we breathe.
