Join WE ACT and Lead Free Kids New York, a statewide coalition advocating for the prevention of childhood lead poisoning prevention, as we head to Albany on May 21 to lobby for the Lead Paint Right to Know Act. We will be taking a bus up to Albany and scheduling meetings with key state legislators to explain to them the completely preventable dangers of childhood lead poisoning and how this bill can reduce the life-long harm that lead exposure inflicts.

How Can I Help?
Spend the day with our staff and colleagues as we take a bus (which is free to you, along with lunch) up to Albany. Once we arrive, you will meet with your lobby team leader and review the key talking points about these bills and the plan for the day – along with any questions you may have – over free coffee and bagels. Once we’re all prepped, we will then split up in teams to meet with legislators and their staff to discuss the importance of passing the Lead Paint Right to Know Act.
For those who sign-up to attend, we will a Zoom prep meeting on May 20 from 6:00-7:00 PM to explain the details of the bill, provide tips on talking to legislators, and answer any questions you may have. In the meantime, feel free to watch this brief video showing what you can expect on one of our Albany trips.
If you join us, we will meet at WE ACT’s office (on the Second Floor of 1854 Amsterdam Avenue, which is at the corner of 152nd Street) at 6:00 AM on April 16. We will have bagels and coffee before boarding the bus to Albany for the day, returning to our office around 6:00 PM.
