Toxic Waste Sites in Cuyahoga County. Urban Institute has developed a data tool showing toxic waste sites to HeadStart programs.

WHAT CLASH NEEDS is a data/mapping expert to drill down to where we can identify the exact locations represented on the map.  Can you help?

A companion website provides case studies of how communities have addressed toxic exposure problems. If you have the time it might be useful to review these case studies to see what lessons community activists can take to mitigate toxic exposures.
