Get the Lead out 05112024.png

There is no safe level of lead; not in drinking water, and not in the human body. Please join us to learn more about lead in drinking water, why it is a racial justice issue, and what you can do in your community to solve it!


Even a small amount of lead can harm health. Lead has effect, across a variety of contexts; lead paint, lead in water, and more; and progress has been made; but lead in the water, is still a crucial issue.


How can you find out if your drinking water have lead? What steps can you take to get lead out of your drinking water? How big a problem is lead in drinking water, for homes in Woburn? Come and find out!


A recent, and exciting additional measure, is the development of Lead Free Plumbing Standards, which are in the process of being implemented, as well.

In Spring 2021, the Reparations Committee called more than 400 members of Congress, including every member of the House Committee on the Judiciary, during the lead up to their historic markup of H.R. 401.

In June 2021, the committee had a Chapter Conversation with Assistant Speaker, Congresswoman Katherine Clark, who serves the Fifth District of Massachusetts, on A Political History of America's Black Reparations Movement.
