Making a Difference
Making a Difference at the
Tar Creek Superfund Site:
Community Efforts to Reduce
Risk
is a book that we hope
will inspire other communities
facing environmental injustices.
It comes with a DVD featuring
a new film Progress at Tar
Creek
and two films of youth
efforts through service learning.
The first printing was made
possible through a grant from
the National Institutes of
Environmental Health Sciences.
 
Thank you for sharing our vision
to make a difference. There is
still more to be done.  LEAD
Agency will accept donations to
reproduce additonal copies and
