Project Title & Description
ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE - MAKE THE ROAD BY WALKING, INC.
This project will use collaborative participatory research facilitated through community meetings and surveys to study risks associated with lead paint and the application of pesticides in the Bushwick neighborhood located in Brooklyn, New York. The research will identify the level of human exposure to those risks and the reasons for that exposure. Over 1,000 residents will be educated on ways they can reduce their individual/household exposure. In addition, the recipient will promote healthier alternatives, such as Integrated Pest Management (IPM), throughout this effort.
