Flint, Michigan vs. Stand Rock Sioux Tribe

#1. Think about how you felt when you first heard about what happened to the good people of Flint, Michigan when their water supply was contaminated with lead.

#2. Now think about the current plan to build a risky oil pipeline through the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation’s only source of drinking water. Imagine the pipeline is built and then sometime later leaks oil into the water.

If you’d be less upset about #2 than #1, ask yourself this question: “Why?”
