Empowering African Communities to Reduce Exposures to Health Hazards
The Empowering African Communities to Reduce Exposures to Environmental Health Hazards Project will reduce environmental exposure to harmful toxic cleaning chemicals and residential exposure to pesticides for the growing number of African immigrants and refugees living in the Portland, Oregon metropolitan area. Multilingual multicultural staff from the IRCO and experts from key project partners will take a train-the-trainer approach to provide community leaders from smaller ethnic organizations with necessary information and tools to take ownership and thereby improve the health of their families and community. Trained community leaders will engage African families in culturally and linguistically sensitive problem solving activities at community workshops introducing them to risks associated with over-the-counter products commonly sold and used in the U.S.
