This collection documents the activities of the American Lung Association of California's Government Relations Office, 1985-1996.
Founded in 1904, the American Lung Association (ALA) of California is a state division of the national organization. ALA fights
lung disease through education, community service, advocacy and research. They have assumed a leading role in the fight against
tobacco, helping smokers to quit, encouraging children not to start smoking, and protecting nonsmokers from secondhand smoke.
The organization actively presses for improved government standards for air quality and funds research grants, enabling medical
scientists around the country to seek the causes of lung disease and develop more effective treatments and cures.
