Cleveland Lead Advocates for Safe Housing (CLASH) is an all volunteer, largely self funded coalition of 9 community based organizations, working to make Cleveland Lead Safe. CLASH advocates for full and timely implementation of the Cleveland Lead Safe Certificate ordinance and to expand the scope of lead safe protections for Clevelanders who are at risk of lead poisoning.

Climb the ladder of engagement to  transform Cleveland from a toxic waste site into a safe environment where the next generation can grow and thrive.

A Ladder of Engagement from Awareness to Governance

Governance -- manage the resources, set the goals, preserve the CLASH tradition, and protect the history and tradition of CLASH.

Leadership -- skill and issue training for local activists, creation and support of civic engagement around lead issues.

Advocacy --actions taken in support of others. Research, writing, public policies, participate in events, donate funds.

Activist -- actions taken in support of an individual need: report a lead hazard, get a child lead test, complete s survey, get a home lead test.

Awareness -- members of the public who understand the dangers of lead poisoning.
