Participating City Leaders

This year, we challenged city leaders around the state to take the Clean Air Day City Leaders Challenge. By taking the challenge, leaders show their commitment to public health and help our communities focus on something we can actually control during a very challenging year.

If your city leader hasn’t taken the challenge yet, encourage them to commit to California Clean Air Day now by sending them a link to the challenge.
