Lisa Ryan of New York Magazine interviews participants in the Women's March on Washington, including two from Flint.
We came to protest but we also came because we have a water crisis in Flint and we fight for clean water. It’s been going on for too long, and we’re tired of it and we need clean water. We caught a bus here — it was about ten hours. We hope people see this and realize we still are having a water crisis, and many people could speak out and we could get clean water.Read all the interviews here.

Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.
