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.
