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.
