Pollution Watchdog Turns 50




Clean Air Council (CAC), Philadelphia's oldest environmental nonprofit, was founded before the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, before Earth Day and before the Clean Air Act. It has been fighting for everyone's right to breathe clean air since 1967, and now will celebrate it’s 50th anniversary at a reception from 5:30 to 8 p.m., November 9, at R2L restaurant, in Center City. Executive Director and Chief Counsel Joe Minott will also be marking his 35 years at the council. Special guests Mayor Jim Kenney and Senator Bob Casey will be in attendance.

CAC has a goal to raise $50,000 toward bolstering the newly created Legal Victory Fund to ensure it has what it needs for the battles faced both now and in the future.
