Air Pollution, COVID-19 Mortality, and Communities of Color: What We Can Do About It, May 27

With a respiratory pandemic sweeping the globe, it’s important to understand the links between air quality, health, and injustice. On May 27 at 6 p.m., the MetroWest Climate Solutions Group will present a free virtual event on this topic in its series on tackling climate change. This event is sponsored by the Union of Concerned Scientists and Conservation Law Foundation.

In this webinar, Xiao Wu, a Harvard School of Public Health Ph.D. candidate in biostatistics, will describe the research linking COVID-19 death rates with particulate air pollution. Paulina Muratore, a Senior Campaign Organizer with the Union of Concerned Scientists, will describe how fine particulate matter from cars, trucks and buses disproportionately impacts communities of color and the need to reduce air pollution from the transportation sector. Staci Rubin, a Senior Attorney at Conservation Law Foundation, will moderate the program.

The speakers will share information about how to take action. To register for this free event, visit
