How to Fight for Your Community – Lessons from the Flint Fight for Clean Water

What would you do if your water came out of the tap brown?

Listen to the courageous and tenacious Lee-Anne Walters, one of the main community organizers in Flint, Michigan’s lead water crisis, tell host Joan Michelson how she brought the community together to fight for clean water – and collected the scientific support they needed. This interview took place at the Earth Day Network 2018 Climate Leadership Gala, where Lee-Anne was recognized for her work. (This was recorded under our previous name, Green Connections Radio.)

The problem persists and all lead pipes have not been removed, so Lee-Anne is still leading the effort for clean water in Michigan and nationwide, says, so that no other families or communities need to go through this ordeal.
