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 gofundme for the officer who murdered Eric Garner is at $161k in 27 days.

Our goal is $170k. We've been campaigning over a year to get clean water to Flint.

In America, we don’t turn our backs on our neighbors when they need help. After watching everyone on social media forget about thousands of Americans struggling due to the water crisis, we decided to create our own campaign to help Flint. #SaveFlintChallenge #NoWaterNoWall

The levels of lead in Newark New Jersey's drinking water are some of the highest recently recorded by a large water system in the United States.

While celebrities, musicians & @MTV ignored Newark's water crisis at the #VMAs, Newark’s residents didn't have access to clean water.
What #MTVVMAs proved was, celebrities don't give af if you're drinking poisoned water. They only care about you supporting, viewing or buying their shit. @MTV & a long list of celebs will come to your city, party, host an award show, and ignore your crisis. #NewarkWaterCrisis
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 #NewarkWaterCrisis #AmericaHasAWaterCrisis

All those damn celebrities from New Jersey on stage at the @vmas in Newark, and nobody mentioned the water crisis in Newark? Everyone failed New Jersey. #NewarkWaterCrisis #MTVVMAs
.@MTV I've lost respect for you, and so many others. The award show was boring overall, and you failed at addressing the #NewarkWaterCrisis. And you were in Newark. #AmericaHasAWaterCrisis

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've been campaigning hard for thirteen months to get clean water to Flint, Michigan. The Trump gofundme did $25M in eight months for a racist border wall.

Help us exceed our Labor Day goal to provide more clean water. Please consider donating or sharing. gofundme.com/rvaflint-water…
