Join us this Friday, July 18, 2014, at 1 p.m., EST as @MomsRising chats with @PeoplesWaterDet.

During the chat we'll touch topics that Detroiters are experiencing, including:

  1. Detroit's current water crisis as a public health issue with clear public-health oriented solutions
  2. intersections of health and criminal justice system (for both those behind bars as well as survivors of crime)
  3. the impact of trauma
