Lead Poisoning: Prevention & Environmental Justice


Many people know that there is no safe level of lead but did you know that lead poisoning is an environmental justice issue?

Lead poisoning affects millions of people each year but does not affect children and their families equally. Children who come from low-income families or children who are black and brown are affected disproportionately more than other racial groups.

This webinar is from November 16, 2022.

Speakers are Robin Brown, the CEO of Concerned Citizens Organized Against Lead (CCOAL) in Cleveland, OH; Oceanna Fair, the South Branch Leader of Families for Lead Freedom now in Syracuse, NY; and Rebecca Meuninck, Deputy Director of the Ecology Center.
