In 2015, Lee-Anne's tap water tested at 27x the EPA limit for lead. The city offered a garden hose for her family.  She (and many others) went on to expose Flint, Michigan's toxic water nightmare and have been fighting for safe drinking water. Lee-Anne vowed to continue using her voice to bring about change.

"My personal mission now is to change the way the state is testing for lead and copper, because they're testing with loopholes and that needs to change."

Her battle has brought her to Capitol Hill, where she testified before Congress. In 2016 she filed suit against multiple corporate and civic entities for their role in the city's water crisis. As her attorney, Corey Stern, put it: "It's time for the kids to be heard. The reality of what happened to these children — and how it will affect each of them for the rest of their lives — has been drowned out in the noise... [and] we are prepared to file as many individual cases for children in Flint as there are children in this city who have been lead poisoned." Lee-Anne's heroic fight continues.
