Kudos to Rev. Alfred Harris of the Concerned Pastors for Social Action; Melissa Mays, co-founder of the group Water You Fighting For; and Trachelle Young, a former Flint city attorney and all the others involved. Keep it up, the fight isn't over by far.

Noted. Thanks, Cal.
Enough time has been wasted, the people of Flint need some immediate relief. Many are working hard to help, but the MI Gov. is stonewalling.
