The water crisis in Flint affects young and old alike, and the first step toward a solution is to remove thousands of lead pipes that run from main street lines to people’s homes. But before the work can be done, the homeowners must give permission.
AARP Michigan has joined the Flint Water Crisis response team as a trusted resource to assist residents with the lead pipe replacement and to act as an information clearinghouse for older adults in the city.
AARP Michigan volunteers took a crash course in door-to-door canvassing today, as they prepare to help Flint residents fill out permission cards for tainted water service line replacement.
AARP Michigan will help older adults in Flint affected by the Water Crisis and we need volunteers -- people who want to help others throughout the community to be sure their water is safe.
Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, the Flint pediatrician who relentlessly called attention to lead poisoning issues in the Flint water supply, has been named the winner of the 2016 Stephen J. Gools Award for Social Change sponsored by AARP Michigan.
