The city and state is not adequately responding to dangerous levels of lead poisioning among low-income children and children of color. East Side Neighborhood Development Company will create and implement their own lead abatement program and will work towards a provable reduction in lead poisoning on the East Side by eliminating government barriers to abating homes, attracting more money to fight lead poisoning, and creating a community-driven organizing model that can be exported, including their own blood testing, analysis and documentation.
