Needed: a Utah Valley chapter of Utah Moms for Clean Air

Utah Moms for Clean Air is a savvy new player in the movement to clean-up Utah's dangerously contaminated air. We are a non-profit, grassroots organization of Utah mothers and allies who share a concern about the health impacts of Utah’s dirty air. Our mission is to use the power of moms to clean up Utah’s dirty air. We are working to accomplish this by a combination of individual action, education outreach, and the shaping of policy and legislation.

Our organization was launched in May 2007, and while we are less than 5 months old, we have been bolstered by the groundswell of support for our message. We would now like to get this message out to folks in
Provo, a city that suffers from some of the worst acute spikes in pollution in the nation.

To do so, we would like to establish a chapter of Utah Moms for Clean Air in Utah Valley. We need at least one person to spearhead this effort, so if you are interested in motivated moms and other concerned citizens in your area, please send us an email to: supermoms@utahmomsforcleanair.org.

The more chapters we can establish across Utah, the more powerful we will be. The founder(s) of a Mom's chapter in Utah Valley can decide how much they want to be involved and what actions they would like to take. Actions can range from just signing on to letters that we write to elected officials, to meeting with your elected officials, to holding educational talks, etc. The most important aspect of establishing a chapter in Utah Valley is to demonstrate that concern for clean air is not just a "liberal" Salt Lake City concern. So please join our efforts and make a difference for not only the children of Utah, but all citizens of this beautiful state.

With Warm Regards,

Cherise Udell
Founder and President
Utah Moms for Clean Air
