We need your help to strengthen   

Children's Right to Lead-Safe Housing Ordinance


In 2008, the San Diego City Council unanimously approved the Children's Right to Lead-Safe Housing Ordinance. While this was a huge victory for children's health, a stronger measure that included a more protective clause was opposed by the San Diego Association of Realtors and removed from the ordinance.  


Now, EHC is proposing an amendment to increase the number of children protected. The amendment would require that pre-1978 multi-family rental housing shall be made lead-safe by either the seller or the buyer at the time of sale.  


Tell the City Council's Public Safety & Neighborhood Services Committee to Protect ALL Children from Lead Poisoning!
