In Class Flint Service Project

I really enjoyed learning about Flint and sharing the knowledge that I gained from my research with 5th and 8th graders. The United States has a huge problem with lead. Lead poisoning is not only a Flint problem it is a problem every where. During this project I learned that lead poisoning has occurred in California, Baltimore, and even upstate New York. Most of the places that are affected by lead are poor communities that are filled with a minority population. This really upset me which is why it was very important that this fact was mentioned in the presentations to the middle schoolers. The more people that know about the severity of lead poisoning as well as the United States problem with neglecting our poor minority communities, the more we as a community, city, and even nation can focus our attention on fixing these problems.
