“ When the children of majority-black Flint, Michigan, have been drinking and bathing in lead poisoned water for more than a year, making sure all Americans have clean air and water isn’t just a health issue. It’s a civil rights issue. We would be outraged if this happened to white kids, and we should be outraged that it’s happening right now to black kids.”
“ I am here because for almost two years, Flint’s water was poisoned. I’m here because, for nearly two years, mothers and fathers were voicing concerns about the water’s color, the smell, the rashes it gave to those bathing in it. For nearly two years, you were told—Flint was told—the water was safe.”
