PPH- The Clean Air Act- 50 Years of Legal Pollution (Monique Harden and Logan Burke)
Logan Burke discusses how air pollution affects our lives, communities, and nation with Monique Harden from Deep South Center for Environmental Justice (DSCEJ). December 31, 2020 is the 50th Anniversary of the signing of the Clean Air Act- 50 years of legal pollution.

Rather than keep pollutants out of our air, water, land, and bodies, the laws as written enable legal pollution by merely requiring companies to self-report emissions.
