I’ll be filming the water crisis again for this blog and my documentary this weekend (Saturday Feb. 15-Monday Feb. 17). Please let me know if you would like to be interviewed on your feelings about the water crisis, would like to show me your water and/or allow me to film in your home, or know anyone else who would like to do so. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I would appreciate you sharing this information and considering contributing your story because everyone’s story is important.
It is the stories of individuals, people suffering from the water crisis, that are the least told in the media coverage of this event. Yet these are the most important stories, the stories that inspire change.
Please consider sharing your story.
I know I have been absent here on the blog lately, but that’s because I’ve been back in Columbus teaching, writing my dissertation, and working non-stop on some big things for the water crisis. I can’t wait to reveal the news, but I still have to wait a bit longer before I do.
Here are some things I’ve been working on that I can tell you about:
I’m also still working on the water and supply drive at OSU, accepting donations online here, and will have an update on that soon. This is a big undertaking because of the scale and bureaucracy at OSU, but I am doing my best.
I was so proud and happy yesterday when Governor Tomblin announced that Dr. Andrew Whelton will be heading up the in-home water testing and research. I have been working with Dr. Whelton from the beginning of the water crisis to spread the word about water safety in homes and put my trust in his research and true compassion for West Virginia.
You can read my interview with Aljazeera America in “Obama’s failure to mention the water crisis disappoints West Virginians.”
I was also asked to be the new activist blogger on Hillbilly Speaks.
I’m still tweeting the #WVWaterCrisis. Follow me @klbryson.
Thank you all again for your support in getting the word out about fundraising, promoting the blog, and sharing your stories.
