Why Axelle works for Clean Air Fund
People at the intersection of racial and economic exclusion are among those most affected by climate change. I learned about the health problems caused by air pollution through Rosamund Kiss-Debrah’s campaign. Her nine-year-old daughter, Ella, died following a severe asthma attack triggered by poor air quality. By working at Clean Air Fund, I want to ensure that the people who need it most have access to air quality data to continue to raise public demand and advocate for clean air.
