This is a community information session open and free to the public which will present research on the lead crisis here in Milwaukee. There will be a short presentation followed by breakout sessions designed to prompt community discussion on the basis of providing a much need democratic platform on which the community can play an active role in the discussion.
The breakout sessions will seek to address two main questions, which can then stimulate further and more in-depth discussion between community members:
-What can we do as the collective public to further the cause of lead lateral removal in the city of Milwaukee, so that it occurs in the quickest and most effective way possible?
-What will we be unable to do without city, county and state government recognition of the severity of the issue of lead poisoning, and active participation in its remediation?
Light snacks and refreshments will be provided.
