Administrative History of the Clean Air Coordinating Committee

The Clean Air Coordinating Committee (CACC) was formed as a non-profit unincorporated association in the summer of 1969 with the help of the Tuberculosis Institute of Chicago to combat the health threat posed by air pollution. The CACC sought to increase public awareness of air pollution, encourage the formation of community action programs and new civic organizations to promote clean air, and to pursue high air quality standards in the legislature and the court system.
