Meet Mr. Harvey. Hard working father taking care of his kids. He doesn't want to be in Flint anymore. When I asked him if he was leaving, he said "It's not that easy." Flint is a poor city, that deserves clean water & revitalization. They deserve better. #SaveFlintChallenge
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 #FlintWaterCrisis
Flint Focus: Before I continue this Thread, let me say, the gun violence in Flint needs to end. After cameras stopped, Mr. Harvey let me know someone was shot days earlier at the gas station in this video. Saving Flint is deeper than water. #SaveFlintChallenge #EndGunViolence
.@TeamPelosi When you emailed me at the start of our campaign to help Flint, you assured me we'd see results and action on behalf of @SpeakerPelosi. Flint still doesn't have clean water, and water distribution programs are closing due to lack of funding. What's your plan.
During my campaign and time in Flint, we helped a lot of people. But this campaign was also about giving a voice to the residents still struggling. I discovered everything from babies being bathed with bottled water, to outbreaks of rashes due to tap water. #NoWaterNoVote
12 people died due to the Flint water crisis, and thousands were poisoned.

15 people have been charged in the Flint water crisis scandal. Nobody is in jail.

Charges pending on an additional 8 individuals.

Rick Snyder still hasn't been held accountable. #NoWaterNoVote
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. #SaveFlintChallenge #NoWaterNoVote
How much will be invested into people living in Flint experiencing mental health issues caused by the water crisis. We found out people still come into Flint hospitals for nervous breakdowns due to the city’s water contamination crisis. #NoWaterNoVote
Flint Focus: I've been silent about this intentionally, but we also collected cases of Flint water from various taps in homes all over the city. I've been consuming this water since August 2018, over a spaced out period-for research purposes. No blood tests have been done yet.
The government failed Flint’s residents for decades. Implicit bias and systemic "racism" ingrained in housing, education, infrastructure, and emergency management all perpetuated discrimination and eventually led to the Flint Water Crisis. #SaveFlintChallenge #NoWaterNoVote
The Flint Water Crisis hasn’t ended, and we have to keep the pressure on our elected officials until Flint residents have clean water, better living conditions and those responsible for the crisis have been held accountable. #SaveFlintChallenge #NoWaterNoVote
Too many are just too consumed and most have given up on Flint, but will never admit it. Everyone tweets about Flint, but not many are doing anything to help Flint recover. It's like Flint is Cinderella before the Ball, and everyone is wearing the glass slippers but her.
Meet Barry. Great man who takes care of his nieces and said kids & the elderly are struggling the most. #SaveFlintChallenge #FlintWaterCrisis #NoWaterNoVote
I'd like to also remind everyone of the fact that Flint residents are victims of "environmental racism" and Flint is being neglected because it is 57% black 41.5% poor. #SaveFlintChallenge #FlintWaterCrisis #NoWaterNoVote
Take a trip to Flint, Michigan. witness the long lines of cars wrapped around the block. the poverty. listen to the people. cry with the people. help the people.

I promise you'll look at life, water, our government and tweets different. #NoWaterNoVote
Water in Flint won't be safe until all of the corroded lead pipes have been replaced and the medical community signs off on it. Until that happens, people are still lining up to get water wherever they can. #SaveFlintChallenge #NoWaterNoVote
#SaveFlintChallenge is a community improvement social project centered around water relief for Flint, and encouraging everyone to extend a helping hand in communities other than their own.

Thank you to everyone contributing, listening and sharing our campaign. #NoWaterNoVote
Listen to my recent interview with @witinradio. I'm speaking on Save Flint Challenge, Flint Water Crisis, Politics, Black America and more. Check it out here: podbean.com/media/share/pb…
@officialjaden Smith’s foundation is bringing clean water to Flint. Who else will step up and accept the #SaveFlintChallenge. #FlintWaterCrisis
We can't forget the conversation that keeps getting lost after we talk pipe replacements. What plan is being constructed to repair the trust between Flint residents and politicians. I've spoken to hundreds of Flint residents who feel that particular damage is irreparable.
