WE ACT is back again this summer with our free “Black and Green Summer Movie Series.” Join us as we preview the PBS/NOVA film, Poisoned Water. Poisoned Water examines Michigan officials’ 2014 decision to save money by switching the predominantly black city’s water source from Lake Huron to the Flint River. The decision to switch to nearly 40-year-old corroded river pipes left Flint residents with dangerous levels of lead in their drinking water.
The screening will begin with a panel discussion featuring: State Senator Marisol Alcantara, NRDC’s Eric Goldstein, NOVA’s Ralph Bouquet, and NYC Department of Environmental Protection’s Ibrahim Abdul-Matin. The panel will be moderated by Peggy Shepard, WE ACT Executive Director.
