The History of UPAL National
United Parents Against Lead (UPAL National) is a national networking organization of and for parents of lead poisoned children working to end the continuing threat of lead poisoning and other environmental hazards through:

  • education;
  • advocacy; and
  • resource referral.

Founded in 1994, UPAL National is committed first and foremost to ensuring the basic rights of all children to live in a safe and healthy environment. United by our experiences and commitment to children, we know firsthand the effects of lead poisoning and irreparable damage and suffering caused by this preventable disease. Parents have  a responsibility to bring children's voices and experiences into the national dialogue and remind participants that children's health and safety is ultimately everyone's responsibility. UPAL National assists parents in organizing chapters in states and local communities. We are dedicated to assisting families and communities affected by environmental hazards. UPAL National promotes proactive steps to prevent children's exposure to lead instead of parents "learning after the fact". UPAL National wants to ensure that other families do not needlessly repeat our experiences. Lead poisoning transcends all barriers. Without regards to racial origin, socioeconomic level, whether living in the suburbs, inner cities or rural communities, parents need information that will empower them to make informed decisions.
