LEAD OUT NOW! Chicago
Great News! We have collected over 1,000 signatures online and in the streets and we are just getting started! We simply will not stop until we get all of the lead out of Chicago!
There is toxic lead in the water in Chicago and the city is doing nothing about it.
We need your help! We will be mass petitioning all over Chicago, holding people’s hearings, carrying out an advertising campaign, rallying and pressuring elected officials to stop the systematic poisoning of the residents of Chicago and much more.
Recent studies have found high amounts of lead, a neurotoxin that is unsafe at any level, in the water of Chicago homes. There are over 400,000 lead service lines — all installed by a mandate from the city despite the known hazards — poisoning the residents of the Chicago. High levels of lead have been found in the water in the parks and the schools.
The poisoning of the city disproportionately effects children, our schools, poor and oppressed people. Mayor Emanuel says he will do nothing. That is criminal! We are fighting back and together we will get the lead out! Sign and share the petition to demand LEAD OUT NOW and join the campaign!
