About Us

Work Force Development

Our goal is to create training and employment pathways so those from the most lead affected neighborhoods will be equipped and employed to do the lead abatement work necessary to make Milwaukee a lead safe city.

Advocacy

Our goal is to seek an end to childhood lead poisoning in Milwaukee through policy changes, legislative action, governmental accountability, and infusion of substantial private/public funding for strategic work. 

This committee meets on the third Thursday of each month at 12 noon on zoom.
