Childhood Lead Action Project (Click here for their website)
Childhood Lead Action Project has been a leader in educating the
community about lead poisoning prevention. Our grassroots approach to
lead poisoning prevention education is unique in Rhode Island.
Childhood Lead Action Project (Project) promotes lead safe policies
through representation on policy-making groups, testimony at
legislative hearings and intervention in the regulatory process. The
Project serves as a community catalyst in coordinating the Get the Lead
Out Coalition (GLOC), a statewide membership network of organizations,
agencies and parents of lead poisoned children. Largely due to the
efforts of GLOC, Rhode Island has made significant progress in securing
protection for children through innovative public policy.
