Dig deeper. Engage with the community. Take action.
What the Eyes Don’t See, Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha’s firsthand account of the discovery of lead in the Flint, Michigan water supply, reflects many critical issues that disproportionally and unfairly affect the vulnerable in our society. In addition to aging and dangerous infrastructures, the Flint example highlights instances of environmental injustice, health disparities, social inequities, poverty, the long-term and sometimes irreversible effects of adverse experiences in childhood, and more. And, we’re learning that Flint is not alone in this regard, as many other US towns and cities—in fact, communities around the world—share these challenges.
To empower Northeastern students to learn more about these issues and prepare to take action, the University Honors Program invites all Northeastern students to take part in additional programming inspired by What the Eyes Don’t See.
