Helping Immigrant Families in Flint's Water Crisis

Organized by: Genesee County Hispanic Latino Collaborative

Event Name: Flint Water Crisis

THE STORY:

In the midst of the Flint water crisis, some families have been left behind. Critical information about the lead in Flint's water was not translated into Spanish, leaving many Latino immigrant families in the dark. Some distribution centers were asking for identification in order to get water, making it difficult for undocmented people to get clean water. 

In many cases, these families have young children who have been exposed to the water because they simply didn't have accurate information or clean water. One family we met had an 11 month old that has been exposed to contaminated water for it's entire life because the family was unaware of the crisis. This is unacceptable.

Since efforts to reach immigrant families have gone ignored, we've taken it upon ourselves to take care of our community during this public health crisis. On Sunday 1/24, we had nearly 70 volunteers from across the state canvassing Flint's eastside to reach families who needed help. 

We need your support to continue reaching out to immigrant families to ensure that they have access to accurate information about the lead in the water, clean water distributed to their homes, and water filters. Please donate what you can to help Flint's immigrant families get access to clean water.
