The Flint Water Crisis: A Panel Discussion  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

Following the Flint city government's decision to pump it's water supply from the Flint River without properly treating it, old pipes corroded and lead contaminated the water of thousands of homes. After a public outcry and research revealing the damage done to the water supply, Flint is now being put back onto Detroit water.

Please join the Center for Gender in Global Context, Gender, Justice, and Environmental Change, Community Sustainability, and Lyman Briggs for a panel discussion on the crisis and the intersections of environmental justice and gender.

The panel will feature university researchers as well as activists from Flint. Confirmed panelists;
- Dr. Sara Fingal, History and Lyman Briggs
- Melissa Mays, Water You Fighting For?
- Claire McClinton, Democracy Defense League
- Dr. Jennifer Carrera, Sociology
- Dr. Susan Masten, Civil and Environmental Engineering
