OUR MISSION: To end the continuing threat of lead poisoning and environmental hazards through intervention, education, advocacy and resource referral.

All of us who are advocates for healthy homes and an overall healthy environment I ask that you please sign my petition at change.org.  It is asking Virginia's Governor Robert McDonnell to reinstate mold regulation which is scheduled to end on July 1, 2012.  With the deregulation anyone will be allowed to inspect and remediate mold hazards without any training,  any certifications and without being licensed.  This can create undue exposure to occupants of the homes and to the workers themselves.  Please support this effort. I have mailed a letter to the governor which follows the link to the petition.  Thanks for your support.

It'll just take a minute!

Once you're done, please ask your friends to sign the petition as well. Grassroots movements succeed because people like you are willing to spread the word!

Director's Comments

As Founder and National Director of United Parents Against Lead (UPAL) I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all of our supporters and sponsors who have made UPAL a 10 year success story.  UPAL has endured and triumphed over many barriers and obstacles both personal and external. We have exceeded our targeted enrollment of 100 residential units scheduled to undergo lead hazard remediation.  Our team of experts truly rose to the task of "Getting the Lead Out". To them I am ever grateful and extend a heart filled thanks for their hard work, dedication, commitment and persistence.

Without you UPAL would not have been successful in the implementation of HUD's Lead Elimination Action Program. It has truly been a LEAP of faith.  We look forward to serving our communities over the next 10 years.

UPAL thanks all participants, supporters, sponsors and awardees for making the Purple Ball a huge success. A Grateful Servant - By Zakia Shabazz
