#Lead2020: Lead Safe Homes, and Healthy Families

August 19, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Four Weeks, Four Webinar, One Goal: Eliminate Lead Hazards in Virginia’s Homes.

A 4-Part webinar series on lead contamination in homes in August and September to raise awareness about the dangers of lead contamination in homes across the Commonwealth.

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the disparity and the need for safe housing.

The organizers hope to build a coalition that can work together towards fully abating lead from our housing stock and water systems. Panelists will discuss the long-term health impacts, current policy and initiatives to address the problem, and the necessity for additional legal, financial, and structural tools to ensure that lead poisoning becomes a thing of the past.
