Margaret Davis, in partnership with United Neighborhoods for Reform (UNR) and Lead Safe America, received a grant from Central Northeast Neighbors (CNN) Small Grants Program to support the showing of a lead hazards film, mislead, at the Hollywood Theater (tentatively scheduled for Feb.), with panel discussion follow-up and a recruitment effort to get fliers delivered to homes in the vicinity of house demolitions throughout Portland; and 2.) David Whitaker received support from an East Multnomah Soil and Water Conservation District grant program to plant native plants along the Alameda stairs by 43rd Avenue.
