Children in Fresno, California sometimes have to stay inside all day due to air pollution.

On this edition of Your Call’s One Planet Series, we’ll have a conversation about how the Trump administrations’ policies are impacting children’s health.

A new Union of Concerned Scientists report is sounding the alarm on how attacks on science are putting a generation of kids at risk, and how dramatically the administration has abandoned the mission of protecting kids based on the best science. What do we need to know? And what can we do about this?
