Philadelphia Healthy Schools Initiative

Parents United is a founding member of the Philadelphia Healthy Schools Initiative

Philly Healthy Schools Initiative’s mission is to take immediate, ongoing, and much needed action to address the threat of dangerous conditions in Philadelphia’s public school buildings and grounds.

We need to protect our kids’ health

All of our schools should be healthy and safe for our children, teachers, school workers, and community members. 
Yet, incredibly, even the most basic standards to protect our kids and teachers from environmental health risks in school buildings are almost non-existent at the federal, state, local level. 
This has got to change.
