Nearly 37 million children live in areas with unhealthy polluted air, and many pollution-associated illnesses have been on the rise. Environmental challenges on our livelihood are on the increase and it is important for organizations like Green DMV Foundation to actively advocate for policies addressing public health, growing economy, clean air initiatives and more. Green DMV helps influence policy change in the region that will spur sustainable green job growth and equitable environmental policies. Green DMV is fueled by a passion to ensure that the green economy is inclusive of all people.
