The toxic tap water of Flint, Michigan, has turned into a firestorm for officials who appear to have purposefully misled the public about the problem. Veteran investigative reporter, Curt Guyette was hired by the ACLU of Michigan to document the impact of the state’s radical emergency manager law which takes power away from locally elected officials. In the process of reporting on the law, Guyette helped to discover and expose its shocking consequence: the poisoning of Flint water system and the apparent attempts of the state government to deny and disguise the problem. Guyette will share his story of being at the epicenter of the unfolding crisis. He will discuss his observations about the part that racism played in this disaster and the current efforts being made to hold government officials accountable.
