Awakening Now! with Little Miss Flint

Saturday, November 2, 2019, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM


Join Myers Park Baptist Church in Heaton Hall on November 2nd for a youth-led environmental justice forum, featuring Mari Copeny, popularly known as ‘Little Miss Flint.' In early 2016, then 8-year-old from Flint, Michigan wrote a letter to President Obama, describing the unending plight of her community, who had been living with lead-contaminated water since 2014. Since then, Mari has partnered with the nonprofit Pack Your Back, has raised over $500,000 to support 25,000 children in Flint and beyond, and has given out over a million bottles of water. Come hear what ‘Little Miss Flint' and young activists from across Charlotte have to say about the ongoing crisis and how young people can get involved in justice movements around the country. There will be representatives from local organizations offering resources as well a special musical performance directed by Charlotte Judge.
