Improving Community Health and Making the Invisible Visible

At CCA President and CEO Joe Lyou’s house, we saw how a concentration of fireworks and barbecues over President’s Day weekend increased air pollution exponentially. Near the site of the Exxon Mobile refinery in Torrance (below), our monitors picked up pollution spikes where local air quality regulators’ monitors didn’t. Every person who signs up joins a network of people ready to lead the charge to improve air quality in their community and show policy-makers that they want clean air now!
