“We’re really glad the conference happened. We didn’t realize how many other communities are affected by water issues. We got to meet amazing influential people. We are part of “We the People of Detroit” and we partner with “Michigan Roundtable.” We show the music and stories from young people around the state. Our issues are racial inequities, water, housing, transit, criminal justice and education. We are helping with the water issues, putting together water stations where people can pick up water, a water hotline, and canvassing to inform people and to help those who need it.  — Jada Patrick and Preston Welborne El (Jada and Preston are some of the youth who participated in the gathering)
