Flint Water Crisis Relief

Happy Hour: A Shot Of Conversation is a podcast created by Sofia T. Stanley, Esq., Kennelia Stradwick & Emile Ennis Jr.  to provide an outlet for those with & without a voice.  To offer an opportunity to speak to the issues that affect our lives on a daily basis.  Part of having a voice is using it to help those who may need it the most.With that said, the people of Flint, Michigan need all of us right now.  There is currently a water crisis going on in the city and we’d appreciate any support you can offer.  Whether its $1 or $100, 100% of every donation you provide will be used to purchase bottled water from US Retail Grocery Stores such as Meijer, Walmart, etc. & ship it directly to The Food Bank Of Eastern Michigan for distribution to those who need it .  This issue is especially important to us, as one of our hosts (Kennelia Stradwick) is a Flint native with family & friends currently in the city.The more help the better, so please feel free to share this with your individual networks.With Gratitude, Kennelia, Sofia & Emile *additional information below“Flint's drinking water became contaminated with lead in April 2014 while the city was under the control of a state-appointed emergency manager.As a cost-cutting move, the city began temporarily drawing its drinking water from the Flint River and treating it at the city water treatment plant while it waited for a new water pipeline to Lake Huron to be completed.Previously, the city used Lake Huron water treated by the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department. The state Department of Environmental Quality has conceded it failed to require needed chemicals to be added to the corrosive Flint River water.As a result, lead leached from pipes and fixtures into the drinking water. It was not until Jan. 5 that Governor Rick Snyder declared a state of emergency and Jan. 12 that he mobilized the National Guard to assist with distribution of bottled water and water filters. Although the state helped Flint switch back to Detroit water in October, danger remains because of damage the Flint River water did to the water distribution system.”
