Childhood Lead Action Project

“The mission of the Childhood Lead Action Project (CLAP) is to eliminate childhood lead poisoning in RI through education, parent support & advocacy. Founded in 1992 by parents of lead poisoned children, medical professionals, social justice activists, and other community members, we remain the only organization in the state devoted primarily to this critical environmental justice issue.

Childhood Lead Action Project coordinates community-based education campaigns for urban communities seriously affected by lead poisoning while mobilizing citizens to work for environmental justice. Childhood Lead Action Project facilitates multiple coalitions across the state where environmental, housing, health, and social service groups and parents of lead poisoned children work together to promote lead safety. Current local committees include the high-risk communities of Providence, Pawtucket, Central Falls, and Woonsocket.”
