Clean air festival in SLC Saturday

Senator Luz Escamilla (D – Salt Lake) and Salt Lake City YouthCity Government, are encouraging the public to attend the Breathe Clean Festival on Saturday at Salt Lake City’s Glendale Public Library.

The event is designed to inform the public about short and long-term solutions to improve our environment and individual, family and public health.                            

“The Breathe Clean Festival is the first of an ongoing series of events aimed at educating and empowering our West Side communities and Salt Lake City on reducing health risks and emissions,” says event organizer Dr. Daniel Mendoza, Post-Doctoral Research Associate with the University of Utah Department of Atmospheric Sciences.

Included in the day’s activities are speakers, information booths, workshops, free flu shots, a kids’ activity area, prizes and giveaways and food trucks.

“This event is a great opportunity for Salt Lake City residents, especially those living on the West Side, to get the information necessary to protect their own health and that of their families,” says Sen. Escamilla.

The Breath Clean Festival is sponsored by Salt Lake City YouthCity Government, The City Library, and ten public health partners.
