#NN14: Saturday Highlights

We wanted to share a few quick highlights from our last day of programming:

More on the Detroit water crisis

In this morning’s keynote session, local activists shared more about the Detroit water crisis and the organizing happening around this critical issue. A few comments from the Twitterverse:

From @RJHuf: “We can’t call this the greatest country in the world if we fail to take care of our fellow citizens. We’re all Detroit.”

From @rebelnurse: “Detroit activists talking about pension theft, foreclosures, water and organizing are heartbreaking, yet inspiring.”

We’ll have full video from this session soon.
