Civil Rights, Faith, and Environmental Groups Urge Congress to Address Flint Lead Crisis before Recess

The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights

WASHINGTON - 86 national civil and human rights, faith, and environmental groups are urging Congress to include immediate aid for Flint, Michigan, in the Continuing Resolution to fund the government before the congressional recess. The people of Flint, a low-income and majority-minority community, have been suffering from over-exposure to lead for more than a year without any emergency aid.
