Tamara’s son Avi –  poisoned at 7 months old.

Click here for Avi’s story.

The Lead Safe America Foundation was founded March 31, 2011 by our Executive Director, Tamara Rubin and our founding Board of Directors.

We created the Foundation in response to Tamara’s years of volunteer advocacy work since her children were poisoned in 2005.  After her children were poisoned Tamara found that parents across the country were facing the same challenges she faced when her children were first poisoned: difficulty finding information, difficulty communicating with pediatricians about the issue, difficulty finding resources and a near impossibility to find emergency short-term alternative lead-safe housing once a child has been poisoned.

LSAF was founded to help alleviate the challenges faced by so many parents of lead-poisoned children.  We offer emergency intervention and support to families whose children have been diagnosed as positive for lead in their blood. We engage in outreach and education for the primary prevention of early childhood lead poisoning.  And finally – and perhaps most important – we provide support to parent-advocates so the web of information has a framework that can spread across the country with parents getting the information and resources they need and then turning around to – in turn- help other parents in the same situation.

Please take a look at our “Programs” page to see all the ways we help families, and consider making a tax-deductible donation in support of our work.

If you or someone in your family is in need of help, email: leadsafe@me.com and we will respond as quickly as we can.

We don’t yet have any full-time paid staff and are currently inundated with calls each week so do our best to get back to families within 48 – 72 hours.

    Here is how to put Gov. Shyder in prison for life with his pals.

    Read the Michigan “Child Abuse Laws”

    (e) “Physical harm” means any injury to a child’s physical condition.
    (f) “Serious physical harm” means any physical injury to a child that seriously impairs the child’s health or physical well-being, including, but not limited to, brain damage, a skull or bone fracture, subdural hemorrhage or hematoma, dislocation, sprain, internal injury, poisoning, burn or scald, or severe cut.
    (g) “Serious mental harm” means an injury to a child’s mental condition or welfare that is not necessarily permanent but results in visibly demonstrable manifestations of a substantial disorder of thought or mood which significantly impairs judgment, behavior, capacity to recognize reality, or ability to cope with the ordinary demands of life.
    (2) A person is guilty of child abuse in the first degree if the person knowingly or intentionally causes serious physical or serious mental harm to a child. Child abuse in the first degree is a felony punishable by imprisonment for life or any term of years.

    at aaee.rocks you can see Chief of LAPD, Charlie Beck, and his entire LAPD Police Commission on 5-5-15, Cinco De Mayo, commit multiple FELONIES when they erased the audio of the entire video and inserted a section of an L.A. City Council Meeting.

    This is a violation of P.C. 132, erasing and/or changing a govt. document. This is a FELONY with no “Statute of Limitations.”
