Jordan Chariton reports from Cleveland, Ohio from a press conference held by Cleveland Lead Advocates for Safe Housing [CLASH] on the emergency lead crisis. The group is organizing a petition drive to get lead-free homes in Cleveland on the ballot in November. 92 Cleveland children were found to have high lead levels in 1 month (since January, 2019).
Status Coup was the ONLY national press at this press conference in Cleveland—I guess children drinking lead isn’t an important enough story for corporate media.
