Did you know that air pollution can affect children’s ability to think?
EPA’s proposal to roll back vehicle emissions standards will pollute our air with toxic chemicals that harm children’s developing brains, putting them at higher risk for learning and behavior challenges.
The EPA’s dirty car proposal is the WRONG DIRECTION for North Texas families!
Please show your support for clean air by signing our petition and then share with family and friends.
Live in Dallas Fort Worth area? Please join the Learning Disabilities Association of Texas on October 11th to show support for cleaner air for all children in North Texas.
The media vent will take place on Thursday, October 11th at 4 PM at Anderson Bonner Park, 12000 Park Central Drive, Dallas, TX 75251 (*at the southwest corner of Park Central Drive and LBJ Freeway directly across from Watermark Community Church). If you can join us for this important event, please RSVP here.

Fuel for Thought: Why Kids’ Brains Depend on Strong Vehicle Emission Standards
In DFW, Poor Air Can Mean Poor Thinking
What: At the end of a DFW summer with more RED air days than in the past six years, the Learning Disabilities Association of Texas is joining with the Mom’s Clean Air Force, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and concerned citizens to bring attention to the big problem of poor air quality affecting kids’ brains in North Texas and to call for the EPA to maintain strong vehicle emissions standards.
While the medical community and public historically connect unhealthy ozone and smog to asthma and lung disease, mounting evidence shows that damaged brain health can be a less apparent, but highly significant, result.
Why: With the EPA poised to roll back vehicle emissions standards, North Texas parents, physicians, teachers and nurses are speaking out. The EPA is taking comments until October 26.
When: Thursday, October 11 at 4 PM
Where: Anderson Bonner Park, 12000 Park Central Drive, Dallas, TX 75251 (at the southwest corner of Park Central Drive and LBJ Freeway directly across from Watermark Community Church)
Photo Opportunities – besides the presence of multiple stakeholders, children will be:
Action: We have until October 26th to tell EPA to uphold strong clean car standards and protect children’s health, so concerned citizens are asked to sign the petition today and share with family and friends.
Take Away: EPA’s proposal to roll back fuel efficiency and vehicle emissions standards will pollute our air with particulate matter, nitrogen oxides and other toxic chemicals that damage children’s developing brains. The EPA’s dirty car proposal is the WRONG DIRECTION for North Texas families!
