The Flint Water Crisis hit the national airwaves and the public consciousness in 2016. Via an "Emergency Manager Law", Flint was stripped of its right to democratically self-govern. Flint lost this right--because it was poor and black. Since the city of Flint was cash-strapped, Governor Snyder enacted the Emergency Manager Law and assigned a city manager, who then switched the source of Flint's water from Lake Huron---to the heavily polluted Flint River. 

 Lead poisoning reached astronomical levels in the children of Flint. If there ever was a case of environmental racism--this is it. The majority of citizens are low income and people of color. Now, after some 6 plus years, the politicians responsible for making a series of decisions which ultimately resulted in the poisoning of Flint's children; Michigan has a responsive Attorney General, Dana Nessel. AG Nessel filed criminal charges against the politicos that were responsible for this attack on the people of Flint---including criminal charges against former Governor Rick Snyder. 

Come listen to the story, and to the quest for justice.
