Our Mission

This coalition believes it will require sustained pressure at the community level to demand that this toxin be removed from our living spaces. To date, the city has only offered half measures and deflections on this public health issue. We are asking concerned citizens to call or email their Alderperson and Mayor demanding a comprehensive plan to remove the pipes, paint and dust. This is a public health issue. 

“And the people who they’re hurting are once again children in our community — generally poor children and people of color.”
— Milwaukee Alderman Murphy speaking on lead toxicity levels in Milwaukee.
