Across the country, children are learning the lessons that will shape their futures. But half a million kids in the U.S. have elevated levels of lead in their blood—likely impairing their normal brain development, contributing to learning and behavioral problems and lowering their IQ's.
No American community is more familiar with this crisis than the residents of Flint, Michigan. As contaminated water flowed from their faucets, an entire country watched in shock—appalled that this could happen in today's America. But we don't have to stand by in silence. This is a problem that needs to be solved now.
Tell Congress: Enough delay. It's time to address the Flint lead crisis, and act to protect all Americans from lead.
Please help Flint recover, and prevent a future lead crisis
Dear [Decision Maker],
