we are a constituent-led, Smart City, non-profit
Here's a list of things that happen to people when they're exposed to lead poison at some point in their lifetime:
Aggression, anemia, Alzheimer's Disease, Autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, brain damage, cancer, Dementia, hearing impairment, heart attacks, high blood pressure, infertility, IQ loss, kidney failure, low educational attainment, personality disorders, premature death, special education requirements, speech impairments, and violent criminal behavior.
This is why it matters for you and everyone you know - we need to get the lead out now.
We found a way to fix lead poisoning in Oakland and we need your help raising funds to pay for it.
Call to action: DONATE NOW
July 28, this last Saturday, the folks at Melrose High Hopes NCPC 17x had their annual festival and community leaders stepped into action to kick off D4's GTLO effort by look at our predictive lead location data to start assessing lead risk in order to Get the Lead Out of District 4 - even before receiving sponsor support! This is great news showing constituent concern and action but we do need financial sponsors to raise the $30K required to support NCPC 27 x & y through strategic planning, training, and testing as quickly as possible! Support D4 and check regularly to watch development fund D4!
lead paint poison risk is in every district & Zip Code
These logos represent 146 micro-communities that roll up to 7 districts in Oakland. We use hexagons, like bees do to make honey, to reach out to you and your network to bring in different resources to create shared value for everyone. The red dots below each logo show snapshots from our early warning system with predicted lead paint poison locations in each Oakland Zip Code and voting district and the people in these houses need to receive these warnings and instructions to reduce their risk so the bad outcomes listed above don't happen to them or to you.. We've put this communication platform together to connect people inside homes with data about their risks inside and outside their homes but we need your help now to get this early warning system to them. Help us start work on August 18 by donating and hitting our fundraising goals by Aug. 17! And please share SmartOak.org with everyone you know!
