MCKEESPORT
Get Out The Lead Campaign

Take Action Advocacy Group and Women for a Healthy Environment have partnered to focus on impacted environmental justice communities to educate, train, and promote health equity. We will specifically be working in the City of McKeesport to teach youth, residents, landlords, and government officials about the dangers of lead.

We are seeking community champions to join us in our efforts. These champions can be individuals residing in the City of McKeesport or organizations with experience advocating for environmental justice in Black communities.
