What We're Working On
Lead Education & Testing Workshop
We collaborated with the Childhood Lead Action Project to present two workshops about lead safety to the community. These workshops were open to residents who were either tenants or landlords/ property managers. We were also able to hand out free lead testing kits.
What We've Done
Objective 1: Increase awareness of local environmental concerns and resources
Strategies: Organize a series of three workshops about lead, water, and fishing; and create/ spread out a community resources mailer
Impact Area(s): Increasing awareness of local built environmental hazards and resources
Outcome/ Evaluation: Sixty residents participated for the lead, water, and fishing workshop series; and a community resources packet was created and then mailed to around 5,500 residential homes within Cranston
Partners: Childhood Lead Action Project, Save the Bay of RI
