Legislator Education

Influencing Lawmakers: Lobbying 101

Michigan Alliance for Lead Safe Homes Lansing Day

Optional Event

For 10 years, Michigan Alliance for Lead Safe Homes (MIALSH) has hosted Lead Education Day at the Capitol to let our lawmakers know ending lead poisoning is entirely preventable, and the ways we can end it are entirely achievable: by testing all toddlers, by increasing lead inspections and by certifying contractors for lead-safe work.

To make the event safe, accessible and flexible, we are taking Lead Education Day online April 27. You can join fellow community members on Zoom to tell your legislator lead poisoning harms children statewide, and common sense solutions can keep its devastating effects away for good.

Date: Tuesday, April 27th
