gives voice to the current struggle of Flint residents, beginning with the history of the river and how abuse and neglect of city in- frastructure and environmental regulations led to the poisoning of an entire commu- nity. Flint explores the critical questions of "How can this happen in an American city?" and "How can this event serve as a warning for the rest of the country?" This documen- tary is an excellent educational resource to start conversations with communities around systemic water justice issues, how to secure safe access for all, and seeks to radically change how we view and value water. Light refreshments will be provided. A brief discus- sion will follow the screening on how we can be responsible stewards to our resources while also thriving economically in our rural communities. Our region is nothing short of amazing and beautiful. We owe it to our- selves, our wildlife and all future generations to keep it that way.
