Ezell, J., Griswold, D., Chase, E., and Carver, E. (2021). The Blueprint of Disaster: COVID-19, the Flint Water Crisis, and Unequal Ecological Impacts. The Lancet Planetary Health. 5(5):E309-E315.
This resource describes how the 2015 Flint Water Crisis developed, how officials responded, and how residents responded to guidance and information (or lack thereof) from officials, in the context of institutionalized and ongoing racial and ethnic disparities. The authors note this information may be used as a case study for improving how COVID-19 mitigation activities are presented and implemented in historically marginalized communities.
