Soot with PA IPL & JEA

August 17 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Free

Join us Wednesday, August 17 at 7:00pm for a meeting as part of PA IPL‘s ongoing partnership with Jewish Earth Alliance (JEA).

TOPIC:
Soot

SPEAKER:
Christopher D. Ahlers, Staff Attorney for the Clean Air Council

Inspirational speaker: TBD

The current standards for the deadly and dangerous particulate matter pollution, or soot, set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are outdated and insufficient.  It’s time for the EPA to update these pollution limits to the strongest science-based standards, to ensure cleaner air for families, advance environmental justice, and protect public health and the climate.  At this meeting Christopher D. Ahlers, Staff Attorney for the Clean Air Council will give us an overview of what particulate matter pollution, or soot is, what causes and what individuals and businesses can do to reduce it.  He will also discuss the recommendations for the revised standards.  There will be time for discussion.


JEA provides ongoing training and templates for monthly letter writing campaigns to local, state, and federal officials. The meetings provide a template, information, and guidance for all those who are interested in amplifying the message of Climate Justice.

Once you learn how easy Jewish Earth Alliance makes it, through their background information and template letter, for everyone to write letters to their federal officials, we hope you will write to your members of Congress now and for the next few months.

There is no fee for this program; your donations help us keep doing the work.
