BACK ELLA’S LAW TO SAVE LIVES

The Clean Air (Human Rights) Bill is also called Ella’s Law in remembrance of Ella Adoo Kissi-Debrah, who died age 9 in February 2013 of an acute asthma attack. Ella was the first person in the UK to have air pollution listed as a cause of death.

The Bill has now moved to the House of Commons where it is being sponsored by Caroline Lucas MP.

There is a duty to prevent future deaths as stated by Coroner Philip Barlow in April 2021. The only way to carry out this duty is to reduce air pollution and clean up the air that we breathe.

Find the letter HERE and ask your MP to back up Ella’s Law.
