“You can’t be refugees because you can’t escape”: Exclusive audio from Flint

People’s World made a trip to Michigan the week of Jan. 20, where reporters Patrick J. Foote and Earchiel Johnson documented how Flint residents have responded to the water crisis.

From demanding Governor Rick Snyder’s arrest to bring the community together for relief, the citizens of Flint are nothing if not resilient.
