Since 2014, Flint Michigan has been without clean water.
Individuals who live in urban areas have been greatly impacted by contaminated water, like long-term cognitive issues. Although it’s an emergency health crisis, the government hasn’t treated the situation as such.
Judge Greg Mathis is one of the many people who have taken matters into their own hands. He donated 50,000 bottles of water to students in the city. He also teamed up with AquaTru to provide nine water filtration systems to charter schools in the city, according to a report.
A 12-year-old activist, Amariyanna Copeny, also known as Little Miss Flint, raised over $130,000 “to create a long-term sustainable solution to the water crisis by bringing state-of-the-art water filters to underserved communities.”
