The Cost of Delay


Coal plants are poisoning our kids. We can stop them. As a parent, you can't breathe for your child. It makes you feel helpless. Pollution from coal plants causes asthma, heart disease, birth defects and early death. And people of color are hit hardest. One in six African American children has asthma, compared with one in ten nationwide. We can protect our kids by slashing the amount of pollution coal plants are allowed to pump into our air and water. The EPA's Mercury and Air Toxics Standards would do just that--and save roughly 11,000 lives a year. But the standards are under attack, and we need to fight back. That's why Green For All and NAACP are asking for your help. Contact your representative and upload a photo showing how air pollution affects you at
