SmartOakland Public Data Utility for Detecting Locations Where Children are At Risk for Lead Poisoning

This SmartOakland Healthy Homes demonstration shows the power of a Public Data Utility in assisting people from different backgrounds to see patterns and bring in their perspective on where the issues may be coming from.

In this clip we here the topics of Prop 13 reform for CA, Freedom of Information Act Requests, data for the good of public health, truck pollution from the Port of Oakland and the steps they're taking to remediate past and current environmental hazards, to a direct request for the Alameda County Assessor, Ron Thomsen, to waive the fee of $22,000 for SmartOakland to acquire data we can use to save lives and keep more kids from being lead poisoned in Oakland this year.
