Dear [INSERT NAME],
I am writing to ask you to support SERA’s clean air campaign A Breath of Fresh Air.
Air pollution is silently and prematurely killing 40,000 to 50,000 UK citizens every year at an economic cost of nearly £54 billion. Sixty years on from the first Clean Air Act we need the same level of commitment to saving peoples lives today through a Clean Air Act for the 21st Century.
More than ever, following the referendum and the risk to EU protections we currently have, we must act. Over the coming months A Breath of Fresh Air will be building support for an act, encouraging research, shaping policy changes and actions, working with a range of organisations and hosting discussions.
I’d like you to add your voice to make this happen. As part of the campaign SERA will be promoting a petition calling for a new Clean Air Act on social media. Will you raise awareness by sharing, retweeting and spreading the word? A number of Labour MPs, MEPs, and Councillors have already pledge their support on the SERA website, please can you join them.
Thank you for your taking the time to read this [EMAIL / LETTER] and I hope you will support the campaign.
I look forward to your response.
More information can be found in SERA’s campaign publication ‘A Breath of Fresh Air | A Clean Air Act for the 21st Century’.
