Local activists, academics, community organizers and state experts will exchange ideas toward making Western New York's homes and communities healthier at a daylong lead and toxic housing forum on April 11.

This public forum recognizes a staggering number of lead poisoning cases reported in New York State occur in eight zip codes in Buffalo, and while this has been a well-known fact for many years, as a community we need to devise a plan with what’s next with lead? Though local groups have been working to address these problems, their efforts are incompletely coordinated. The forum seeks to explore strategies for homes and communities that are dealing with lead and other toxic housing conditions.
