The Alliance is a national public interest organization formed by leaders in public health, environmental protection, affordable housing, and civil rights. The Alliance seeks to protect children from environmental health hazards in and around their homes by advocating for policy solutions and building capacity for primary prevention in communities throughout the US. Founded in 1990 to focus a comprehensive solution to childhood lead poisoning, the Alliance was designed to have the technical capacity and comprehensive reach across disciplines needed to effect change on a broad scale.
Over our twelve-year history, the Alliance has achieved impressive results, serving as an effective advocate and resource to federal agencies, policymakers, grassroots groups, the private sector, and the media on the technical and policy issues related to preventing lead poisoning. The Alliance brings demonstrated expertise, credibility, and effectiveness in finding practical solutions to technical, policy and legislative problems and overcoming real world obstacles to implementation.
