Our investigative reporters talk about the project
About the series
Toxic City is an investigative series about the ongoing struggle to protect Philadelphia’s children, many poor and minority, from environmental harm.
The series has been supported by funding from the Lenfest Institute for Journalism, the University of Southern California Center for Health Journalism and the Dennis A. Hunt Fund for Health Journalism.
Help us investigate how environmental hazards put children at risk and how to create healthy spaces for children to live, play and learn. Call or email with your concerns, tips, and ideas related to lead poisoning, asthma or other childhood diseases.
