Flint Residents Say $600 Million Water Crisis Settlement Is Just The Beginning Of Justice – KALW

26August 2020

On this edition of Your Call, we talk with activists in Flint, Michigan about the current $600 million water crisis settlement. Almost 80 percent of the funds will be dispersed to those who were kids throughout the 2014 and 2015 crisis. Activists state it's insufficient when you factor in long-term health impacts, including potential brain and nerve system damage. Lots of activists state they're still using mineral water and they desire federal government officials to be criminally prosecuted.

Visitors:

Dr. Pamela Pugh, Vice President of the Michigan State Board of Education, formerly worked as the Chief Public Health Advisory for the city of Flint

Sandra Smith Jones, Executive Director at the R. L. Jones Community Outreach Center

Claudia Perkins-Milton, fantastic grandmother in Flint
