Everyone please read this and share if possible. We're on a mission to help Flint residents get clean water, because the government isn't doing enough, and the media is failing at keeping the Flint water crisis a topic of discussion. #SaveFlintChallenge

It took our #SaveFlintChallenge water relief campaign for Flint, 1 year & 2 months to reach $170k. Eric Garner's killer did it in 40 days.

America is officially the most embarrassing country of all time. #FlintWaterCrisis
It's heartbreaking to finally realize if I was a Trump supporter or killer cop, we'd be receiving more support & donations for our campaign to help Flint. #FlintWaterCrisis #SaveFlintChallenge
Thank you to everyone supporting and contributing to our #SaveFlintChallenge campaign. But to the rest who've been ignoring us, fuck you very much. Regardless of how you feel about me, black people, or gofundme -- There is no excuse for allowing a murderer to rise this strong.

The gofundme for the cop who murdered Eric Garner reached $169,737 in 39 days. Let this sink in. Then explain to me how a murderer gets more support than a campaign to help Flint residents get clean water. I'll wait. Donate if you can. #SaveFlintChallenge gofundme.com/rvaflint-water…
It took our #SaveFlintChallenge water relief campaign for Flint, 1 year & 2 months to reach $170k. Eric Garner's killer is about to do it in 40 days. I'd like to also point out, his campaign has been shared 23.8k times. Ours, only 4.1k shares.

This is America. #FlintWaterCrisis
It's all surreal to witness for me, beyond the fundraising because I created the #SurvivingAmericasPolice hashtag to expose cops killing unarmed black people. Watching the world fund Eric Garner's killer, during this Flint campaign was unexpected.

The average person wastes up to 30 gallons of water every day. In a world where so much of the population lack access to safe water, it's shameful that we still waste so much water. And let's admit it – we've all had a role to play. #SaveFlintChallenge #FlintWaterCrisis
The Flint water crisis began in April 2014 when Flint changed its water source from Detroit Water (sourced from Lake Huron and the Detroit River) to the Flint River. Officials failed to apply corrosion inhibitors to the water. People died, thousands poisoned. #FlintWaterCrisis
Before 2010, Flint got its water from downstate. The placement of a sketchy emergency manager to run the city, was a fatal move. He favored Flint getting its water from the Flint River. #FlintWaterCrisis

The children exposed to high levels of lead-laced drinking water from Michigan's Flint River are entering schools now and the school system is straining to meet their special education needs. #SaveFlintChallenge #FlintWaterCrisis #AmericaHasAWaterCrisis edwk.it/2PiqNdZ
I'm in tears. The government did this to innocent kids. #SaveFlintChallenge #FlintWaterCrisis
I watch celebrities and politicians ignore Flint day after day, like it's no big deal. Like it's over.

Truth is, so many kids were poisoned in Flint, Michigan, that it won't be over until they all grow old and die. Lead poisoning damages the brain, kidneys, and bone marrow.

Access to clean drinking water is a human right.

Our government is doing nothing while majority black and low-income communities across the country live with lead in their drinking water. #SaveFlintChallenge #AmericaHasAWaterCrisis #VMAs @MTV @MTVNEWS
If @MTV or at least one person attending the @vmas doesn't mention Flint, Newark or America's water crisis-tonight will be an epic failure regardless of who performs. @MTVNEWS #VMAs
.@MTV @MTVNEWS Do you care about America's water crisis? Do you care about Flint & Newark? I asked your moonmen if they thought everyone deserved clean water. They all agreed. It's time to take this crisis seriously. #SaveFlintChallenge #AmericaHasAWaterCrisis #VMAs

Watching #AmericanSwamp w/ @KatyTurNBC & @jacobsoboroff on Infrastructure. (great job btw)

Every member of Congress should spend a week in the seat next to one of our countries long haul truck driver to truly see how bad our #infrastructure is.

1/....
@KatyTurNBC @jacobsoboroff We as a country need to bite the bullet and raise the gas tax. Not only to support funding the of a massive improvement of the infrastructure.....

America is falling apart and next to nothing gets done at both ends of Pennsylvania Ave.

We must act now...

2/
@KatyTurNBC @jacobsoboroff Not only do we need to fix roads, but also the pipes that carries our water.

We have cities such as #FlintWaterCrisis #NewarkWaterCrisis that have lead in their water.

We also are losing vast amounts of water due to failing concrete pipes.....

I'm challenging every celebrity on Twitter to join us in Flint, Michigan August 31st, and bring a truckload of water (twenty-two pallets.) #SaveFlintChallenge #NoWaterNoWall #FlintWaterCrisis
Nobody seems to care anymore. If you know anyone who might still care about helping Flint, please tag them and ask if they'll accept the #SaveFlintChallenge. Thanks.

Researchers found Latinos and Blacks are more likely to spend up to twice as much of their household income on bottled water as do whites. After surveying some 640 people they found they are more likely to consume bottled water because they view tap water as a health risk.
There's a bigger conspiracy and motive behind the #FlintWaterCrisis. Rick Snyder supported the deal allowing @NestleUSA to take thousands of gallons of Great Lakes water, only paying $200 per year to the state.

"It's not about business versus being anti-business," Snyder said.
This decision to poison Flint was made with not only saving $5 million in mind, but plans to profit from the surge in bottled water purchases after creating a crisis. #SaveFlintChallenge #FlintWaterCrisis #NoWaterNoWall #AmericaHasAWaterCrisis

Putting aside Trump DID obstruct justice during Mueller investigation, Dems-& of course its accomplices like @maddow—came off very foolish 2da. 3+ years #RussiaGate obsession while ignoring

1) #FlintWaterCrisis (still a crisis)
2) nearly half country can't afford $400 emergency
@maddow 3) Trump has disregarded a federal judge and granted permit for #KeystoneXL pipeline
4) 5 years later, NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo is still not in jail or off police force for murdering Eric Garner
5) Trump has DOUBLED Obama's drone war
@maddow 6) Contrary to Trump's bs promises, we're currently in a manufacturing recession

Flint residents express hope and skepticism at water crisis forum. #SaveFlintChallenge #NoWaterNoWall bit.ly/2IU5lGW
This forum was another reminder of how our government is just sitting around watching the people of Flint suffer. Flint families deserve justice.

Flint still doesn't have clean water. #SaveFlintChallenge #NoWaterNoWall
The Flint water crisis is an environmental scandal. One of the most downplayed and disgusting examples of community malpractice currently going on in the United States.

@KamalaHarris If you bring a passion to connect with fed up Americans. And you address ending police killing unarmed people, helping Flint & Puerto Rico, fueling education/ending debt, increasing wages, abortion rights, China & no more concentration camps.

You'll win. #DemDebate
This first round of debating showed us something, but not enough. @ewarren was the obvious favorite, but she's still going to have a hard time making the black community believe. Which now sets the stage for @KamalaHarris. If Harris gives the world that Obama feeling, she'll win.
I've said it numerous times, and I'll say it again. @HillaryClinton should be the current president, and a woman should be our next president. #DemDebate
