Red dots are housing units that need to be tested

 

Red dots are housing units where lead-safe status is unknown and property needs to be checked for lead paint poison. We created these interactive data maps to allow as many people as possible to learn of their personal risk via the Internet, friends, neighbors, elected officials, schools, churches and businesses because wide-spread awareness will get everyone on the same page so we can fix this.

We also need to pass healthy homes safety policies, get funding to fix lead hazards, create workforce development programs for all these renovation jobs, and to recruit community members and leaders to run Get the Lead Out activities in every district.  Your funding these maps is what kicks off awareness and creation of Oakland healthy housing districts.
