How we’re making a difference in Ohio
Moms Clean Air Force Ohio helps raise awareness around racial disparities in infant mortality throughout the state.
While infant mortality rates in Ohio reached the second all time low in 2017 since 1939, this statistic only paints half the picture. The rates of infant mortality of white babies is steadily decreasing as the rates of infant mortality of black babies rises. The disparities are staggering– black infants die at three times higher rates than white infants in Ohio. In fact, from 2013-2015, Ohio had the highest black infant mortality rate in the country.
At the 2018 Mom Power Summit in Columbus, Moms Clean Air Force Ohio helped shine a spotlight on this issue. Five speakers with expertise in environmental pollution and infant mortality presented on the leading causes of infant mortality, and what can be done to help address them. Ohio nurses received continuing education credits for participating in the summit. Attendees also included representatives from the Columbus mayor’s office, Councilwoman Liz Brown’s office, and Congresswoman Joyce Beatty’s office.
Moms Clean Air Force Ohio is continuing this fight, pushing the state to address this issue head on. We are also working to educate moms and healthcare providers on the effects of environmental pollution on infants through our Baby Power campaign.
Ohio and Midwest Moms Clean Air Force members make powerful statement to the Big Three Automakers.
Moms Clean Air Force has been fighting against the rollback of the Clean Cars Standards. These standards lower climate-harming pollution and help families save money at the pump – but the Trump administration is trying to dismantle them. One of the main auto producing states, Ohio is critically important in this fight.
To urge automakers to oppose the rollback, Moms Clean Air Force members from Ohio, Illinois, and Michigan delivered over 13,000 petitions to the Big Three Automakers as well as published op-eds and launched a social media accountability campaign. Moms also attended the September 2018, EPA hearings in Dearborn, MI, Pittsburgh, PA, and Fresno, CA to make it clear that moms across the country want cleaner cars and expect our automakers to provide them.
Fighting dirty bailout politics.
A private jet, a multi-million dollar misinformation campaign, and physical attacks on whistle blowers— these are all part of the battle being waged in Ohio to defend what is being called the “worst energy bill of the 21st century.”
HB 6, passed in July 2019, grants the state’s largest utility company, FirstEnergy Solutions, a total of more than $1 billion in taxpayer subsidies to save two dying nuclear power plants. It also subsidizes two of the region’s dirtiest coal plants in Ohio and Indiana and guts Ohio’s successful renewable energy and energy efficiency programs.
This incredibly unfavorable bill passed with widespread opposition– environmental groups, the majority of Ohio residents, ratepayer groups, and even fossil fuel lobby groups all opposed the bailouts. However, FirstEnergy Solutions poured an estimated $60 million into a campaign to pass the bill and threatened key campaign funding for Ohio members of the House and Senate.
But the battle continues. Moms Clean Air Force is helping in the fight to overturn the bill through a referendum vote in November, 2020. In order to get the bill on the ballot, 266,000 Ohioans must sign onto a petition in support of the referendum by October 21st, 2019.
Moms Clean Air Force Ohio is organizing families to support efforts to overturn this bailout that places industry profits ahead of the well-being of Ohio families. Moms are educating and empowering residents to learn the facts, and see through the million-dollar disinformation campaigns being used to scare voters into supporting the bill.
A strong voice at the Ohio Energy Table.
Moms Clean Air Force Ohio is a founding partner of the Ohio Energy Table, a statewide coalition of environmental, conservation, health, faith, and labor partners working to promote clean energy and energy efficiency. Through our participation in the Energy Table, we work closely with state lawmakers and administration officials on energy decisions.
Moms & Mayors
Our Moms & Mayors program connects moms with their mayors and local leaders to improve children’s health and build resilient communities. We educate, empower and mobilize Moms in their hometowns to work with their local elected leaders to implement clean air strategies, reduce toxins in the community, and take action on climate change. We also train Moms to join boards and commissions and urge them to run for office.
Launched in September 2018, the Ecomadres program brings Latina moms together to address issues of clean air, climate, and toxics that affect the health of Latino children and families. Ecomadres is a collaboration between GreenLatinos and Moms Clean Air Force.
The program provides comadres with reliable information and solutions through online resources, articles, action tools, and on-the-ground events. Our inclusive community empowers and lifts up the voices of comadres for the benefit of our families and communities. Ecomadres has a vibrant network of state-based field teams and allies across the country.
We host cafecitos around the country that provide opportunities for the communities to discuss air quality and climate change.
Moms Clean Air Force is committed to exposing environmental injustices in the African-American community by taking a stand against environmental discrimination, holding legislators accountable for lack of resources, educating communities on their rights and their issues, standing with impacted communities, and fighting for clean air and climate solutions to promote healthy children and healthy communities.
Through our environmental health justice program Community Rx, our goal is to advocate, educate, and amplify through partnering with impacted communities and environmental justice organizations on events and resource development. We hold Table Talks around the country, casual gatherings that organize, motivate, and activate volunteers, partner with churches to use our “Breath of Life” Bible Study, and provide information on environmental health issues in African-American communities.
Our Baby Power program educates and engages expectant and new moms on our issues with the message that every baby has the power to make you want to change the world.
Our cities are making strong climate commitments.
Despite state and federal efforts to hinder the transition to renewable energy, Ohio cities are fighting back with strong commitments to 100% clean and renewable energy. In September, 2018, Cleveland became the first city in Ohio to commit to 100% renewable energy by 2050. Cincinnati soon followed, committing to an even more ambitious goal of 100% renewable energy by 2035.
Columbus, the largest city in Ohio, is now fighting its own battle to pass 100% clean energy legislation. Moms Clean Air Force Ohio is mobilizing around the city to make it loud and clear: Ohio moms want clean energy for our children.
Our children breathe polluted air.
Smog, or ground level ozone, is a big issue in Ohio’s three largest metropolitan areas. Cuyahoga (Cleveland), Franklin (Columbus), and Hamilton (Cincinnati) counties all received an F grade from the American Lung Association in 2019 based on the number of code orange and red ozone air pollution days. Ozone irritates the lungs, can trigger asthma attacks, interferes with normal lung development, and increases the risk of respiratory infections.
But Ohio’s smog issues extend beyond these major cities.
15 out of 34 counties in Ohio that monitor ozone air pollution received a D or F grade.
Our lakes are at risk.
Ohio borders the world’s largest group of freshwater lakes on earth, the Great Lakes. As a source of drinking water to more than 40 million people, the Great Lakes are threatened by pollution and declining water levels, which has already resulted in increased algal blooms. In August 2014, a toxic algal bloom in the western basin of Lake Erie left nearly half a million Toledo residents without drinking water for three days. As the waters in the Great Lakes continue to warm, these algal blooms will grow more frequent. Scientists also predict that climate change will cause water levels in the Great Lakes to drop significantly in coming decades, threatening this source of not only vital drinking water, but also transportation, tourism, commercial fishing operations, manufacturing operations, and sportsmen industries.
Fracking endangers our communities and children.
In 2017, Ohio produced 21 times more natural gas than in 2012, primarily from the Utica Shale region. There are currently over 100,000 active oil and gas wells, compressors, and processors in the state with 3,295,000 Ohioans living within a one-half-mile radius of these sites, according to the “Oil and Gas Threat Map.” Due to their proximity to the infrastructure of the shale boom, these millions of residents are at increased risk of exposure to toxic pollution from natural gas operations. As Ohio’s fracking industry is booming, Ohio families and communities bear the costs.
A dangerous byproduct of the fracking industry, wastewater is injected deep into the bedrock of Ohio communities. A “slurry” of water and sand, fracking wastewater also contains arsenic, lead, formaldehyde, mercury, and other often-undisclosed toxins. This practice has widespread impacts, including earthquakes, toxic spills, and the contamination of groundwater.
And Ohio isn’t just “disposing” of their own wastewater; much of Pennsylvania’s wastewater gets trucked across state lines and dumped into Ohio communities to bypass stricter regulations in Pennsylvania.
Moms Clean Air Force is committed to protecting frontline communities from oil and gas pollution, and is a partner in the Ohio Methane Coalition, supporting strong, effective US EPA regulations to reduce harmful methane emissions from both new and existing natural gas and oil wells. Ohio moms have also been fighting the proposed rollback of the New Source Performance Standards, a federal regulation that protects communities around the country from pollution from new oil and gas operations.
Members of Moms Clean Air Force from around the country including Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Texas testified in Dallas at the only public hearing on the EPA’s New Source Performance Standards for the Oil and Natural Gas Industry. Moms spoke out against the EPA’s plan to weaken methane pollution standards. Read more here.
