PennFuture and Stay Positive Clairton will hold an Air Quality Expo in Clairton on Sunday, May 15th. There will be games and informational resources from various environmental and public health groups so that residents and other attendees can learn more about the air quality in the Clairton community. Food and beverages will be served. Featured at the expo will be the premier of PennFuture’s documentary, “Clairton Coke Works, Clean Up Our Air.” PennFuture produced the short film that spotlights local residents who share their stories on how the air quality in the Mon Valley affects them. Matt Brosey directed and edited the film.

Via the PA Environment Digest blog:

“This event puts a face to the science of air quality,” said Annie Regan, western Pennsylvania outreach coordinator for PennFuture. “Interactive activities, on-site experts, advocacy organizations, community members, and the student group, Stay Positive Clairton, are helping to show that residents of the region can take air quality into their own hands – improving their health and community.”

Tickets are free for the event, but you must register here.
