Thumbs up: Great Catch


Soil sleuths

Identifying and correcting environmental injustice is a

substantial way our community can honor Dr.

Martin Luther King.

Here in Indianapolis, high

lead levels

in neighborhoods already suffering from high unemployment and

low graduation rates threatens to exacerbate a host of social ills by

undermining local children's ability to concentrate and learn. Improving

Kids' Environment

and IUPUI have partnered to administer an EPA grant

offering free soil testing to residents of the Martindale-Brightwood and NearWest

neighborhoods. Residents in these neighborhoods can call 253-1312 or email to arrange a test and

information about how to reduce lead-related risk.
