Click the image below to see tonight NBC Nightly News story (and keep your eyes peeled for an upcoming CBS Evening News piece as well).
As usual, we are very busy behind the scenes—well, no, that’s not entirely right… we’re actually a wee bit busier than usual (that’s why we’ve been soooo quiet on our blog recently… no time to write!): tv news interviews and stories continue—both local and national—nearly every single day![And for those stories where a member of the Lead Safe America team is not quoted or not on camera, we are often involved – behind the scenes – supporting journalists and other parent-advocates in their work to get the facts straight, understand it all and inform the public and protect children!]
Now that *together* we’ve expanded the concern for the issue and brought attention to lead contamination right here on our home-turf (Portland, Oregon), adding the Portland Public Schools lead-in-water “situation” to the conversation on the national stage – it seems that there’s no stopping the progress and impact we (as a team) can continue to make. Our hope is that parents everywhere will continue to join the cause, raising the alarm about lead in their communities (homes, schools and playgrounds), and we’ll be right there to support them in every way possible at each step in their journey.
Thank you for the part you have played in forwarding this important conversation.
