Learning from the Flint Water Crisis: Legal Implications and Community Public Health Impacts

May 15, 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. EST. In 2014, while under the control of a state-appointed emergency manager, the city of Flint, Michigan, switched its water source from the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department to the Flint River. As a result, lead from the aging service lines to homes leached into the drinking water and poisoned thousands of Flint residents. A team of Network attorneys recently published an analysis examining legal aspects of the Flint water crisis. In this webinar, two of the report’s authors will explore the complex legal arrangements at the heart of the crisis and review recommended changes to the relevant laws and their implementation. Then, a health disparities researcher and an activist and community organizer, both based in Flint, will jointly present a community-level response to the crisis. View the playback.
