The Center for Urban Research, Teaching and Outreach will host, “Lead in the Water: A Panel Discussion on Milwaukee’s Lead Crisis,” on Wednesday, March 7, from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in Marquette Hall 100.
The talk and panel discussion will focus on the effects of lead in Milwaukee’s water system. The lead crisis represents a public health threat akin to the ongoing problems in the city of Flint, Michigan. This discussion represents a part of a far-reaching community effort to produce a solution.
The event will feature a keynote address from Dr. Yanna Lambrinidou, professor at Virginia Tech University, and a panel discussion of community activists from across Milwaukee.
This event is free and open to the public.
