Moms Unite to Protect Kids’ Health

A safe home in a family neighborhood and an elementary school where my kids could learn, play and thrive.  That’s all we wanted when my husband bought a house with lots of room, a huge backyard and a park down the street in Weld County.

What we ended up with?  Kids with asthma, multiple daily nosebleeds and memory/concentration problems that started only after we moved in.

Living among oil and gas operations in Mead, I know firsthand the fear you experience when you are left wondering how the toxic chemicals might be harming your kids.

After being shocked that most Front Range counties received D’s and F’s on the recent American Lung Association State of the Air report card on air pollution, moms across the state decided get together around advocating for clean air rules to protect Colorado children’s health.
