Air Pollution & Climate Change in Indigenous Communities

April 15, 2021
6:00 pm
- 7:00 pm EDT

Join us for a round table conversation with Indigenous leaders about the impact of the relationship between air quality, climate change, and public health on Indigenous people.

To shed much-needed light on this important issue, Moms Clean Air Force and the National Tribal Air Association (NTAA) have partnered to develop a new, comprehensive resource, “Air Quality in Indigenous Communities,” and will be premiering this resource during this virtual conversation.

Watch live on Facebook at 6PM ET / 4PM MT.

Between 2.5 and 6 million Indigenous people live in the United States, where generations of systemic abuses have often led to chronic poverty, poor health care, substandard housing, and inadequate protection from sources of pollution. Air pollution causes or exacerbates almost all of the major health disparities experienced by Indigenous people, making it especially urgent to improve air quality on tribal lands.

This roundtable discussion will be moderated by Moms Clean Air Force Field Manager Elizabeth Brandt and will feature the following panelists:

  • Carol Kriebs, Chairperson, National Tribal Air Association and Environmental Director for the Kootenai Tribe
  • Mariah Ashley, Diné, Program Coordinator, National Tribal Air Association
  • Shaina Oliver, Diné, Colorado Field Organizer, Moms Clean Air Force
