Thanks to a grant from the National Center for Healthy Housing, the Virginia Poverty Law Center and the Richmond City Health District will be conducting a webinar series on lead contamination in homes in August and September, with the assistance of Housing Virginia. The goal of these events is to raise awareness about the dangers of lead contamination in homes across the Commonwealth.
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.
The webinar series will take place across four weeks from August 19th to September 9th. Keep an eye out for more information soon.
