Description

"AMERICA'S DIRTY SECRET tells the story of systemic class and racial prejudice that has resulted in a resurgence of tropical diseases, like hookworm, showing up across America because of sewage treatment problems in rural America. The issues rural poor face are different than the issues of urban poor, and Flowers has worked to identify and to solve problems at the intersection of poverty, climate change, and politics. She has given testimony to the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, and presented to the UN Special Rapporteur on Extreme Poverty as well as the UN Special Rapporteur on the Human Right to Water and Sanitation. In 2018, she also had an opportunity to present in Geneva during the convening of the UN Council on Human Rights. Al Gore, People Magazine, and the editors at the New York Time have expressed interest in covering her work as an activists and the Royal Society of Medicine has invited her to become a member (despite the fact that she is not a doctor, but rather the "Erin Brockovich" of the water crisis in this country). Jane Fonda is a friend who will lend support. This is a burgeoning crisis in this country, which is just getting attention. Indeed, some of today's candidates are finally giving voice to the conditions the rural poor are forced to live in, with no support from the government- resulting in a crisis in health due to zero investment in infrastructure.
