Why should I become a member of GASP?

GASP fights for clean air, in Southwestern PA and beyond. It’s true that overall, our air is much cleaner than it used to be, due in part to the pioneering work on air pollution control GASP initiated in the early 1970s. But there are still significant pollution problems in our county and region. As our region diversifies economically, we need to offer a good quality of life to compete for employers and to create new jobs.

The more members we have, the more influential we are when we litigate, meet with decision makers, write to local elected officials, etc. Our membership makes decision makers pay attention, since they know we represent many people concerned about air pollution and our region’s health.

GASP will value and respect your donation by using it efficiently and effectively.
