What is clash?
Cleveland Lead Advocates for Safe Housing (CLASH) are dedicated to protecting the most vulnerable citizens in the City of Cleveland: we’re pushing for legislation that will protect Cleveland tenants and their children from lead poisoning. After years of waiting for Cleveland City Council to take action, the Cleveland Lead Advocates for Safe Housing are taking matters into citizens' hands.
how does it work?
Currently Cleveland only checks rental units for lead AFTER a child has been poisoned.
Our new law will make sure that homes are tested BEFORE a child ever becomes poisoned. This law will also protect tenants, support landlords who wish to fix up their homes, and create a community board that will monitor lead poisoning across the city.
