“MICAH is a lead member of the Coalition on Lead Emergency (COLE). I hope that you will be able to attend the COLE Lead Free Summit on Thursday, September 26, 6:00 p.m., at Hephatha Lutheran Church, 1720 W. Locust St., and recruit friends, family, and members of your congregation to attend this event. Please use the attached flyer for this purpose.

At the Lead Free Summit, we will hear testimonies from several victims of lead poisoning. We will then seek commitments from the Commissioner of the Milwaukee Health Department and key Alderpersons in support of COLE’s proposed “birthing moms” pilot project. (We are awaiting word from Mayor Barrett as to his participation that night). We want $240,000 in the 2020 Milwaukee budget for the distribution of free lead education kits, including free lead water filters and replacement filters, to 2,400 birthing moms from the hardest hit zip codes prior to their hospital discharge.

Blessings,
Rev. Dennis Jacobsen”
