Air activist Kevin Hall now with California Nurses Association

Longtime activist Kevin Hall this week left his position as director of the Central Valley Air Quality Coalition to become a labor representative for the California Nurses Association (CNA).

Hall, who has led the coalition since mid-2011, will remain involved with the coalition on its steering committee as well as the Healthy Air & Stable Climate action subcommittee.

“CNA is a great fit for me,” he said in an email. “The valley’s path to clean air is a political one, and the nurses of CNA are the largest, most effective union in our state. Their pro-health stands could not be better.”

Dolores Weller, associate director of the air quality coalition, has been named as interim director for the coalition.
