In our North Shore and Cape Ann communities, we face an invisible threat of air pollution that causes disease and premature death while it despoils our environment and contributes to global warming. Every breath brings the potential for disease and death.

Like sailors approaching a hidden danger, we need a lighthouse, a warning system for air pollution so that we can mitigate the harm to ourselves, our natural environment, and the climate and so that we can act together to reduce air pollution by stopping it at the source.

Pat Gozemba, Justice Fighter

Mary Harris Jones, the famous labor organizer, told a group of young miners who’d rented a church for their union meeting:

“Boys, you pray for the dead. You fight like hell for the living.”

Then Mother Jones snatched from the priest’s lap the hat, full of money that they’d paid to use the church hall, and led the miners out of the church into the fields.

If there were a contemporary incarnation of Mother Jones, it would be Pat Gozemba.
