Flint Residents Wins Water Funding! – Lee-Anne Walters, Flint Water Crisis Organizer

“It worked really well with everyone concentrating on their area of strength.” Lee-Anne Walters

What would you do if your water came out of the tap brown? As we congratulate Flint, Michigan residents for winning a big settlement recently for the lead contamination of their water supply, finally, after years of fighting for it.

Listen to the courageous and tenacious Lee-Anne Walters, one of the main community organizers, explain to Electric Ladies host Joan Michelson how she brought the community together to fight for clean water – and collected the scientific support they needed. (This was recorded as Green Connections Radio.)

It’s lessons in community organizing we can all benefit from, especially as the country protests the scourge of police brutality, injustice and inequality. Lee-Anne was awarded the prestigious Goldman Sachs Environmental Leadership award for her work.
