West Calumet Housing Project Lead Crisis Support
Organized by: Denise Abdul-Rahman
Lead poisoning has occurred, longstanding lead contamination. A section 8 housing complex was built on top of a lead smelter. The children have more than 7 times the amount of lead referenced by the Center of Disease Control 5 micrograms per deciliter. The families of East Chicago, Indiana and more specifically West Calumet Housing Complex are in need of emergency miscellaneous expense funds and an injection of fresh fruits and vegetables.
