The Flint Water Crisis:
A tragedy deeply
Rooted in
Institutional,
Systemic
& Historical
Racism.



Here’s a few facts about
Fli-city:

Pop: 99,000
Racial Makeup:57% Black;
37% White; 6% Other
Below Poverty Line: 41%


SO this is where they got us f***ed up…


April 25, 2014 -
In order to reduce the water fund shortfall, the city announced that a new pipeline would be built to deliver water from Lake Huron to Flint. In 2014, while it was under construction, the city turned to the Flint River as a water source. Soon after the switch, residents said the water started to look, smell and taste funny.
The switch to water from the Flint River takes place.
So you’re wondering..


What’s Flint River Water Like?
“Super Acidic Water
filled with
Bacteria,
lightly wrapped in
death,
Corroding old pipes
Causing lead to flow
Directly out of the tap.”



AND IT’S STILL GOING ON.
& Yes there are lawsuits going on.
Several. 15 people have died to date from lead poisoning. Fetal Deaths have raised by 58%.
Young Children have been diagnosed
With “incurable” ailments. 89 Legionnaires Disease cases has been reported. MILLIONS of dollars have been raised to create relief, yet..

FLINT STILL HAS POISONED WATER!!!
And to add insult to insult to injury..

The state Stopped Giving bottled water to residents!!


So WHY do WE care? No, why don’t you!

We’re [2] indie musicians originally from Michigan. We are perplexed as to why more hasn’t been done and want to do out part to help our home state. 

We are not linked to the major nonprofits like RED CROSS and UNITED WAY. We believe that people who are donating should be assured that there is an immediate and direct benefit to the most vulnerable families and households in Flint. We will be giving all the proceeds to Crossing Water, http://crossingwater.org. Crossing Water has been working on the ground and helping families since the water crisis began. They truly understand what the most at-need households are asking for, and we are impressed with their works and integrity filled vision.

With any donation above $40, you’ll receive a #FLINTCANTDRINKTEARS tee.



We are fundraising money for the following:
1. Filters for sinks and replacing cartridges for the filters
2. Bottled water
3. Baby formula
4. educational resources (flint illiteracy rate is 36%; one of the highest illiteracy rates in Michigan)

We appreciate you for joining us in solidarity with Flint.
