The Ohio Student Association has teamed up with the Cleveland Lead Advocates for Safe Housing (CLASH) to host Rock the Lead Out: A Lead-Safe Housing Fundraising Concert. The event takes place at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, June 26, at Mahall's 20 Lanes in Lakewood.

CLASH is in the midst of collecting signatures for local legislation that would require that all city rental properties and day care center buildings built before 1978 be tested for lead hazards and certified as “lead safe” by 2021.

Local groups Bonnie Clydeman, Taylor Lamborn, the Alyssa Boyd Quartet and Evan Bloom will perform at the event. They'll likely play some appropriate Clash cover songs in honor of the organization’s namesake, and there will be live painters, an art show, raffles, tarot card readings, mini-massages and more.

The $5 admission underwrites the printing of petition booklets, supports the legal services required to run the campaign, and increases the outreach potential for the campaign.

“CLASH made a promise that we would not give up the fight to protect Cleveland’s children from poisoning, and the time has come to make good on our word,” says CLASH and Cleveland Democratic Socialists of America member Milo Korman in a press release about the event. “The citizens of Cleveland will exercise our electoral rights to place a lead safe housing law on the ballot.”
