Michigan’s statewide stay-at-home order to limit contact during the coronavirus pandemic will extend through the end of the month, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced. 


Through April 30, most residents are required to stay home unless their work or activity is deemed essential. Most in-person storefronts and businesses are closed, and restaurants are limited to takeout or delivery only.

Flint Voices

In 2020 Flint babies are still being bathed with bottled water, and kids are still experiencing outbreaks of rashes due to tap water.


Water in Flint won't be safe until all of the corroded lead pipes have been replaced and the medical community signs off on it. Until that happens, people are still lining up to get water wherever they can. #SaveFlintChallenge support us

Margarita @3MC223 This is my Grandson. He just turned 4, and he lives in #Flint. He has never known what it is like to drink water out of a tap, or brush his teeth and uses bottled water only. I care, and I'm pissed that people have forgotten about the people of Flint, Michigan.  #FlintWaterCrisis
