A multimedia piece exploring the Flint Water Crisis and the events that led to a state of emergency in our back yard, my piece “crisis” aims to serve as a visual representation of how this incredible, avoidable tragedy has been plaguing the wellbeing of our fellow Michiganders. Explore the ways it is affecting residents’ everyday lives, the long term effects it will have, and what we can do to lend a hand to our brothers and sisters in Flint, Michigan. The overwhelming magnitude of this problem makes it difficult to feel like we can make a difference, but we must join forces as a community, a city, a state, a nation. Together we can spread awareness and let the world know that the Flint Water Crisis is still looming imminent as ever in 2018. The residents of Flint, Michigan still do not have clean drinking water. It’s time to get loud.
