Residents of Flint, Michigan are still seeking justice for the infamous crisis that rocked the city in 2014, when their water supply became toxic with lead and bacteria poisoning. Some died, and many are still suffering the ongoing repercussions years later.

Here & Now‘s Robin Young is joined by Michigan Radio’s Rick Pluta.
