Years Without Water: Claressa Shields and the Fight For Flint | Complex News Presents

it’s been five years since the water crisis in Flint started. Pipes are getting fixed and the water is testing at healthier levels, but the underlying issues that led to this massive disaster are still there: poverty, violence, racism. The people of Flint are resilient, but decades of neglect have increased their distrust for their own government, and the city leadership’s reluctance to transparency is deepening that very perception. We linked up with Flint native and Olympic gold medallist Claressa Shields, to explore how the residents of this city have endured so much, and yet they keep fighting for their city, their home.
