“(People in Flint) are living in…a war zone…it’s not America. You’re constantly on guard…and feel invisible”

We were all outraged by the poisoning of small children, as well as adults, in Flint, Michigan as a result of lead in the city's water. It may have fallen off the national news, but the residents of Flint still cannot shower or brush their teeth in their tap water, much less cook with it and the stories are gut-wrenching….

A new documentary in production by Anthony Baxter was screened at the D.C. Environmental Film Festival recently, followed by a panel discussion with Baxter and others involved in the crisis, reveals what these people endure every day…still...

The DC EFF panel was led by Talia Buford, an environmental justice reporter who brings a fascinating perspective, because she is a native of Flint – and her mom still lives there.

Listen to Green Connections Radio host Joan Michelson’s conversation with Talia about the crisis and you’ll never look at water the same again. Hear about:

  • The real daily life in Flint and the community movement to fix it.
  • The potential long-term health consequences for these residents.
  • Where is the environmental justice and what role do demographics play?
  • The stories the media is missing.

(There's some DCEFF background noise and this interview is a bit shorter than others on GCR.)
