The Cleveland Division of Air Quality at the Cleveland Department of Public Health will be hosting a film screening in recognition of Air Quality Awareness Week. The film is entitled “Unbreathable: The Fight for Healthy Air.” It is a powerful look at 50 years of the Clean Air Act and the challenges we still face to ensure healthy air for everyone. The film weaves together historical milestones with current day stories of environmental injustice. This timely film addresses pediatric asthma and recent research which links air pollution to higher cases of death from COVID-19. The screening is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. Register at Eventbrite for attendance. Director Sarah O’Keeffe of the Mayor’s office of Sustainability & Climate Justice will moderate a panel of local stakeholders including healthcare and grassroots organizations.
The screening will be held May 3 at 5:30 p.m. at St. Martin de Porres High School (6202 St. Clair Avenue). Members of the Case Western Reserve University community are invited to attend.
