Neighbors for Clean Air’s mission is to create a healthier Oregon by reducing air pollution, especially emissions of air toxics. To accomplish this goal, we do work in a variety of areas:
Community Advocacy: We work to educate and empower communities so that they can advocate for reducing air pollution.
Monitoring: We’re working to develop a monitoring network to supplement DEQ’s own monitoring.
Regulatory Watchdog: We review regulatory actions by DEQ including permitting and rule changes.
Legislative Advocacy: We work with communities to find ways to more broadly address the issues of air pollution through legislative advocacy when the law needs to change.
