Abigail and Attacking Asthma are helping run a fellowship program for millennials in clean energy industries with a goal of providing training, leadership development and a supportive professional community. They are also broadening their horizons by touring start-ups designing technologies to address the climate crisis.
Since 2019, members of attacking asthma have been working with CCMP, located in Oakland, California. CCMP works with low-income workers to ensure that their health needs are met while also fighting for legislation that would guarantee comprehensive healthcare. Lack of access to healthcare for low-income workers has become a large issue in the United States and beyond. By working locally and partnering with organizations, CCMP is able to understand the needs of the people and supply direct aid.
