We fight lung disease, tobacco, asthma and air pollution to make Washington, DC a healthy place to breathe.
Breathe DC makes every breath count by promoting healthy lifestyles and preventing lung disease throughout the District of Columbia, especially in communities affected by health disparities. We advocate for stronger laws and policies to safeguard healthy air and protect lungs from smoke, air pollution and allergens. Our public health programs empower youth and adults with lung diseases like asthma and COPD to lead fuller, more active lives.
Breathe DC is a proud member of the Breathe America Alliance, a national network of organizations dedicated to preventing lung disease, advancing public health and promoting clean air. Learn more about the Breathe America Alliance and its members.
