Lead in DC water is more prevalent in communities of color's, water sources. Ask me how I know? As the Director of Strategic Alliances, for Black Millennials for Flint alongside my fellow board members @jasonjbarnes @mabson_ and founder, bestie and all around Renaissance woman @bbw_oshun, we have made impactful strides to tackle this phenomena. We helped to draft the Childhood Lead Exposure Prevention Amendment Act 2017 where 89% of our demands were addressed. Because of this bill, ALL educational facilities (DCPS Schools, Charter Schools, etc) water sources will be required to be labeled appropriately, letting parents and children know that the water contains lead, it's and not safe for consumption. #funfact : Lead Consumption causes cognitive dysfunction!
Its ALSO important that Black people, especially warm-up to the idea of therapy or counseling, sharing emotions and feelings freely, and become committed to breaking generational chains of dysfunction in our own families and respective communities! We must be more committed to holding each other accountable for #healing . #mentalhealth #PTSS #BetheMovement #BetheChange #health #healthcare #medicalattention #needed #lead #water #DC #PG #Cleandrinkingwater #water #leadremoval #enviromentalracism - #regrann
