In this lesson, students view photographs documenting the Flint, Michigan, water crisis and explore the themes of environmental justice and the consequences of corruption. Residents of Flint, Michigan, have been facing a water crisis since 2014, caused by poor decision-making by the state government regarding the source and treatment of Flint's drinking water. The crisis calls into question citizens' rights to clean water and how our natural resources are allocated across racial and income lines.
