Its time for you to meet the woman who fights for her family.

My name is Ann and I am a Clean Air member. For as long as I can remember my family lived in an apartment. Owning our own home was only a dream. That dream came true when my family moved to Kaufman Ave in Tonawanda. My Mom was happier than I have ever seen her – she had a yard to plant her flowers and vegetables. When we moved in, we didn’t know what was in the air.

Seven years ago I lost my young Mom to cancer. Who would have thought that breathing the air outside in her yard could possibly take my mother away.

I became a member in 2009. Since then, we have fought and won to make my neighborhood a healthier for my family. I know I can’t bring my mom back, but there is generation of kids who should breathe clean air while they play outside. There are mothers like mine that deserve to garden in their yards. Every one of us has the right to breathe clean air. Join me to make our community a healthier place for our families.
