“We Expect Clean Air Now (WECAN) is a project of the Council of Mexican Federations in North America (COFEM). WECAN is focused on addressing the public health crisis caused by poor air quality. The significant health issues experienced by individuals who work, shop, go to school and live along Southern California’s freeway corridors are significantly elevated compared to those further from the freeways. There are current solutions that are not being deployed for no good reason. WECAN seeks to educate and activate the communities along freeways and help raise their voices to deliver clean air solutions NOW!”
“The mission of the Council of Mexican Federations in North America (COFEM) is to empower immigrant communities to be full participants in the social, political, economic, and cultural life of the United States and their home country. We accomplish this work by uniting, strengthening, and expanding our member organizations to better advocate, preserve and share their cultural traditions and help improve the lives of families and friends in their country of origin”.
