The NAACP Mystic Valley Area Branch and Clean Water Fund is sponsoring a public forum on Saturday, November 20th from 11 AM to 12:30 PM at Malden City Hall, in the City Council Chambers, 215 Pleasant Street.
There is no safe level of lead in drinking water or in the human body. Please attend to learn more about lead in drinking water, why it is a racial justice issue, and what you can do in your community to solve it! Lead contamination has effect across a variety of contexts - lead paint, lead in water, and more. A new and exciting measure is the development of Lead-Free Plumbing Standards which are in the process of being implemented. Although progress has been made, lead in the water is still a crucial issue.
All are invited to attend in person or may register on Zoom at: bit.ly/noleadinwater for a link to online/hybrid access. This informative program is free and open to the public and is an opportunity to learn more about additional information on drinking water, and what can be done to remove lead from our drinking water supply.
