Action Today for a Healthy Tomorrow

Children and Families

Lead disproportionately affects young children,

causing serious medical and behavioral issues into adulthood.

Housing

Low-income communities and/or communities of color are most at risk

due to systemic inequities. Fortunately, these issues are preventable when we target the sources of lead.

New Jersey

We can address this complex problem on a larger scale than any individual or organization can alone.

Working together as Lead-Free NJ, an inclusive and equitable collaborative focused on removing lead from New Jersey’s environment.

Action - Get Involved

The time is now to demand action 

and organize for statewide lead remediation in every home, childcare facility, school, and water system.
