On Flint and the environment.

 Contributed to Purple Walrus Press by Flint Water Crisis activist Melissa Mays.

All work and no sleep makes me cranky. BUT we got a ton of work done this week and started a huge push forward in combining art, activism, legislation, the courts, the labs, the streets, and community empowerment to fight for clean water, air, and soil. There's a lot of work to be done but if we all set aside our differences and focus outwardly on the world around us AND the future, we can make the needed changes. For those who are wondering how to get involved, there are a lot of options and angles you can take depending on your talents and interests.
Here are some of the projects, programs, and amazing groups I'm working on/with:
