UNBREATHABLE: THE FIGHT FOR HEALTHY AIR is a 30-minute film that weaves historical milestones of one of the nation’s most critical health laws, the Clean Air Act, with current-day stories of environmental injustice and community action.

Nearly half of all Americans still live in areas with unhealthy levels of air pollution, particularly those in poorer communities. Asthma is the number one health issue for children in the U.S today. Recent research links air pollution to higher cases and deaths from COVID-19. Yet, environmental regulations and the enforcement of existing laws are being stripped away.
