Respiratory Health Association

Chicago, Illinois



Dedicated to community lung health, the association addresses asthma, pulmonary disease, lung cancer, tobacco control and air quality through its research, education and advocacy activities. This funding helps to build community engagement and advocacy for a collaborative campaign, in partnership with the Environmental Law and Policy Center, aimed at reducing diesel pollution from Chicago’s rail yards and galvanizing community action in vulnerable low-income and working-class neighborhoods.
