There has never been a well-organized constituency for noise control similar to interest groups supporting other types of environmental protection.

The Quiet Coalition is a group of science, health, and legal professionals concerned about the impacts of noise on health, environment, learning, productivity, and quality of life in America. It provides a platform for communication, programs, and coordinated action for those trying to bring current medical and scientific knowledge to the process of creating a quieter, more sustainable, and livable world.
The Quiet Coalition was formed to give one voice to the growing public health problem of environmental noise. We are united in urging governments in America to consider recent and past scientific findings on the health effects of noise.
We believe an evidence-based approach to noise as a health and social problem, combined with educational outreach and organized action, can lead to meaningful change. Only changes in public policy can generate the change we need for a quieter and healthier world.
