    "Women of Steel' build power at international conference - Workday Minnesota
    The "Protect Our Kids – Stop Toxic Imports" campaign offers a limited number of free Get the Lead Out screening kits through www.stoptoxicimports.org or www.protect-our-kids.org and provides other tools to fight the failed trade and inadequate regulatory policies that are allowing dangerous products to threaten children and jobs.

    Women of Steel and the USW's Health, Safety and the Environment team will conduct "Safe Home Sessions" across the United States and Canada, where they will do lead screening and provide training on how to remove lead products. Education about trade issues and tips for political action also will be provided. Minnesota is among the states where sessions will be held, Widner said.
