Deborah P. Brown, the Chief Mission Officer for the American Lung Association discussed the newly released State of the Air Report, an annual report issued by the ALA each year, tracking air quality for the region and the country. The study looks ozone and small particle pollution – some natural, pollen and soot from wildfires, and man-made, exhaust and other emissions. She discussed the ramifications on lung health and its impact on urban dwellers and low income families, as well as the impact of climate change on creating pollution and poor air quality. We discussed the American Lung Association’s advocacy for COVID 19 vaccination, their smoking cessation work and the negative impact of COVID on these programs, and local research grants awarded by the ALA. Finally, how we can get involved with the program, advocacy and fundraising, including the Fight for Air Climb and the Lung Force Walk.

Jewish Perspectives on the News and Politics with Burt Siegel

This program will not hold back on what the host and his guests believe is wrong with an American society in which anti-Jewish sentiments as well as racism have become too often tolerated, where cooperation across party lines is treated as treachery, where immigrants and refugees are seen as a threat to the “American Way of Life” and the gap between the ultra wealthy and the average American is ever widening. While it will reflect the values of Judaism and the Democratic party all are welcomed to share their thoughts regarding how we can achieve the dream of what our nation aspires to be about.
