Stopping Diesel Pollution

The National Air Toxics Assessment shows that Portland’s airshed is bursting with a toxic stew consisting of dozens of heavy metals and chemical compounds, including 49 that are carcinogenic. The assessment was based on raw data collected in 2011 that took several years for the EPA to analyze and compile.

A coalition of neighborhood associations, concerned citizens, and environmental groups is forming to put an end to this unacceptable assault on our health. Join our mailing list on the form below, to receive news and updates on this important issue.
