It is our shared responsibility to learn about our history as Americans, which cannot be understood without knowing Black history. To help with this, resources are available online through both the Smithsonian Museum as well as the National Education Association. This Black History Month, we encourage all people to brush up on their history by following the advice of Amanda Gorman, the youngest inaugural poet in U.S. history, and reading stories three times to hone her own voice.

All people, regardless of race or place, deserve the same rights and freedoms. For too long, Black and brown people in America have been denied equality because of the color of their skin. To help students understand the reality of Black people's experiences in American history, their impact on American culture, and to celebrate their achievements, the National Education Association has compiled a selection of lesson plans that cover a variety subjects and that can be adapted to fit multiple grade levels.

The start of this new year is truly unlike any other. There are many ways to keep your family safe, but one thing you cannot miss is getting your little ones tested for lead.

Lead can lurk in older homes and even a small amount can harm your child, as their bodies are still developing. Talk to your child’s doctor to get your child tested, and this year let’s make sure we keep our children safe.

“The future is always beginning now.”
- Mark Strand

We strongly urge all parents in Alameda County to get their kid’s blood lead levels tested. Lead can be lurking in older homes and even a small amount can harm children – and most children who have lead poisoning do not look or act sick. This new year let’s talk to our children’s doctors and start the year healthy. The future is beginning now.

Visit www.achhd.org for more information about how to keep your family safe.

LEAD poisoning is very dangerous. It causes mental delays and behavioral problems.
I called on both Friday morning and early this morning, with no reply. We have current construction going on with lead paint removal, no effort to contain chips/dust or protect tenants' health, including a 4-year-old child. Need help asap, before it is too late. Property is covered in extensive lead paint chips and dust, which is near sewer, water, and vegetable garden. Tenants cannot open windows or leave doors open.
What does this mean for Oaklanders who have lead paint in their homes?
