Lead-Free Philly

Although it is entirely preventable, childhood lead poisoning remains a stubbornly intractable health problem in southeastern Pennsylvania – particularly in Philadelphia. We are pleased to report that thousands fewer children in Philadelphia have been harmed by lead over the last decade – in part because of Children First’s and our partners’ steadfast efforts to raise public awareness, change housing and health policies and facilitate the passage of a new Philadelphia law.
