Mona Hanna-Attisha - What the Eyes Don't See: A Story of Crisis, Resistance, and Hope in an American City — in conversation with Representative Dan Kildee — at Politics and Prose at The Wharf

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, June 20, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

In September 2015 Hanna-Attisha announced that Flint children's blood lead levels had doubled after the city’s water supply was switched to the Flint River a year earlier. This revelation, which Hanna-Attisha arrived at using hospital data after being denied the information she requested from the state, was only the beginning of her work. She mobilized the community to fight for justice and then, called on to testify before Congress, she inspired the wider national public health, environmental, and civil rights communities to join the Flint citizens’ movement. Her eye-opening book is a detailed inside look at Flint’s crisis, as well as a history of environmental degradation in poor communities in the U.S., and her own compelling story of growing up as the daughter of Iraqi dissident scientists. Dr. Hanna-Attisha will be in conversation with Congressman Dan Kildee, Representative for the Fifth District of Michigan.
