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 discouraging & hurtful part about the Pantaleo gofundme to organizers like me, is when we humbly reach out to media, celebs and influential voices to help evolve missions that improve America—we get ignored or receive a nod for the moment. But killer cops get help instantly.
What I never understood, if celebs don't want to support our campaign, why don't they at least all come together and launch their own fundraiser to help Flint. It doesn't start or stop with me, but damn.

The Pantaleo gofundme if anything, proves racists invest in killer cops.
Sorry, but America is failing Flint. I'm literally showing you how weak the push is to support and save a poisoned city in the United States. #SaveFlintChallenge #FlintWaterCrisis
After a deadly Legionnaires’ outbreak coincided with Flint's water crisis, scientists urged Michigan's top health official to step up surveillance or else more people could die.

His response was, “They’ll have to die of something.” #SaveFlintChallenge
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 #FlintWaterCrisis #FlintsDeadlyWater
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

.@TeamPelosi When you emailed us at the start of our campaign to help Flint, you assured me we'd see results and action on behalf of @SpeakerPelosi. Flint residents feel forgotten, and water distribution programs are closing due to lack of funding. What's your plan?
The @frontlinepbs doc on @PBS should have opened everyone's eyes, and made them want to help Flint. One thing we must add to the story -- the people responsible for #FlintsDeadlyWater can possibly walk free if the statute of limitations isn't changed.

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
Flint’s water service contract required the city complete a pipeline connecting it to the county’s water provider, Karegnondi Water Authority, by Dec. 31.

It won’t be constructed by then because final designs for the project still haven’t been submitted. bit.ly/2zN3gXY
The government poisoned Flint residents to save $5 million, which also killed people. Then stopped giving away free bottled water because it was costing them $22k a day. Five years later, they're still suffering. Each day nothing is done to help Flint, complicates their recovery.
I've taken our #SaveFlintChallenge from Flint to the White House, and we won't calm down now.

We have to keep the pressure on our elected officials until Flint gets clean water and those responsible for the crisis are held accountable. #FlintWaterCrisis #SaveFlintChallenge
Just because the Flint water crisis isn't trending, doesn't mean it's over. #SaveFlintChallenge
Thank you @VanJones68 @Rosie @MelissaJPeltier and @DebraMessing for caring about Flint, and sharing our #SaveFlintChallenge campaign. #NoWaterNoWall
Dear @pattonoswalt. It would be an honor if you shared our #SaveFlintChallenge water relief campaign for Flint. We've been reaching out to you for a while. You'll be in my city today on Grace St. I'll be there. Definitely consider. Thanks.

America is officially the most embarrassing country of all time. #FlintWaterCrisis
I'm highly disappointed in my country. Each day I'm online having to beg people to donate & care about helping Flint. Meanwhile a killer cop sits at home with his feet up, while the world shares his GoFundMe campaign easily and he reaches $170k in 40 days. This is disgusting.
After this #SaveFlintChallenge mission for Flint, I'll possibly be retiring from crowdfunding. Seeing how unbalanced these campaigns are compared to those created by killers & racists, makes me dislike too many people I once respected.

So many people could be helping.
I'm stripping myself of all pride and humbly asking you to retweet this Thread and share our #SaveFlintChallenge campaign.

@kerrywashington @rosariodawson @brielarson @Zendaya @ChelseaClinton Please help boost our mission. Everyone deserves clean water. gofundme.com/rvaflint-water…
