Moms Clean Air Force members from Pennsylvania and Florida are featured in the 2019 EcoSense for Living documentary film titled “Do We Still Need the Clean Air Act?” The documentary will be aired on PBS member stations across the country.
The film takes us back in time to mid-century Donora, Pennsylvania where a tragic toxic air incident led to the Clean Air Act. Next we meet mothers from Moms Clean Air Force who examine sources of air pollution and discuss how to guard children’s health from pollution from fracking and coal-fired power plants.
These women activists are given a national platform to reveal the ongoing health impacts of dangerous air pollution. By spotlighting the experiences of real people like Patrice, Vanessa and Michelle as they courageously confront fracking and coal-fired power plants in their hometowns, audiences across America will better understand the all-too-human cost of runaway air pollution and how it directly contributes to our changing climate.
We hope this thoughtful documentary inspires viewers to demand urgent action on climate change.
Please watch and share PBS on-demand streaming of “Do We Still Need the Clean Air Act.” Here’s the trailer:
