Flint Water Crisis

Tammy Brewer has lived in Flint, Michigan her whole life. She stopped paying her water bill after the city's water crisis broke out because she refused to "pay for poison." She must use bottled water in every aspect of her life. In order to shower, she fills a bucket full of 24 water bottles and pours it over her head with a cup.
