UPHE and their partner organizations launch Unmask My City today with an expert panel discussion and photo gallery about the sources driving air pollution, the health and climate impacts of Salt Lake City’s poor air quality, and the need to focus on policy solutions that will lead to clean, healthy air for the people of Salt Lake City and of Utah.

Through Unmask, health organizations and health professionals in participating cities are pushing for solutions such as congestion charging to reduce car and truck traffic in cities; increased support for active transportation and cleaner-energy public transit; phasing out construction of new coal power plants; and monitoring and regulating sources of industrial and natural dust.

Reducing air pollution is a win-win, because everyone deserves to breathe clean air and live in a stable climate.
