American Lung Association Ends Affiliation, Changes Name

Sacramento, CA — The local American Lung Association is ending its affiliation with that organization and is becoming Breathe California of Sacramento-Emigrant Trails.

Organizers say the change is the biggest in its 88-year history. The announcement was made yesterday at simultaneous press conferences in Sacramento, Los Angeles, and the Bay Area.

Many historical displays were visible at the headquarters including groundbreaking programs such as Proposition 99, the tobacco tax initiative and smoke free workplace ordinances.
