Faith Communities and the Water Crisis in Flint, Michigan #FoodFri
For over two years resident of Flint, Michigan, have endured lead-poisoned water.
In April 2014, Governor Snyder appointed an emergency manager who switched the Flint water supply from the Detroit water system to the Flint River. This change, done to save costs, put the lives of Flint residents in peril when lead leached from the pipes into the water supply.
This has had devastating effects on children, families and the community as a whole. Residents will suffer the consequences for years to come. To help, faith communities have stepped in to advocate, as well as provide resources and assistance.
