TSB and YIC have begun a social media campaign to gain pledges to take local action around lead soil contamination! Youth have begun generating media to spread awareness and information on the issues of lead, and are asking others to spread the word. Take action by getting a free soil test or signing our pledge promising to take on 7 easy ways to combat lead toxicity in your yard! 

TAKE THE PLEDGE HERE.

All this is possible, only with your help!
