The Fund Our Facility Coalition recently sent a letter to Governor Tom Wolf urging his administration to find a way to immediately send $100 million for asbestos and lead abatement in Philly’s schools.
The letter reads, in part:
“In light of the horrific Mesothelioma diagnosis of a long-time Philadelphia teacher, we once again made our urgent plea. We believe that $100 million of our $170 million ask must be invested immediately to address dangerous asbestos and lead in each school.”
The letter–which includes photos highlighting dangerous school building conditions–is signed by 32 of the legislators, labor leaders and community groups that make up the Coalition.
