About Group Against Smog and Pollution (GASP)

Group Against Smog and Pollution (GASP) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit citizens' group in Southwestern Pennsylvania working for a healthy, sustainable environment. Founded in 1969, GASP has been a diligent watchdog, educator, litigator, and policy-maker on many environmental issues, with a focus on air quality in the Pittsburgh region.

From our roots as an all-volunteer led organization, we have grown to have seven paid staff, including two full-time attorneys. In these past five decades we've worked tirelessly and accomplished a lot, including reviewing and commenting on hundreds of air quality permits, regulations, and policies, and educating tens of thousands of residents about air quality issues.We've fought for clean air in communities throughout Southwestern PA, writing countless letters to the editor, speaking at public hearings, and serving on numerous regional committees and boards advocating for improved air quality.
