Description from site: El Aire Que Respiramos (The Air We Breathe) is a transformative Latino Community Science Project aimed at not only understanding the air quality in underserved Latino communities across the United States but also empowering these communities to take informed actions to improve their air quality, overall well-being, and address the pollutants that cause poor health and climate change. Through this project, community members engage in scientific data collection, analysis, and advocacy, bridging the gap between scientific knowledge and everyday life.
