[nfbmi-talk] Fw: this should go to NFB list serve

Hello Mary Ann,

Thank you for posting this email to the email list. I never thought I would
ever say this, but for once, I actually agree with Joe harcz. I believe the
Flint water crisis has presented the NFB of Michigan with and exhalent
opportunity for both advocacy and outreach.

I do not know if this information is included in any of the local literature
being handed out to the residents of Flint, but it would be a good thing for
people living in the Flint area to ensure they are getting proper amounts of
vitamin C, and perhaps consider increasing their amounts of this vital
vitamin. Based on what I have recently read about vitamin C, it appears as
though vitamin C can help the body get rid of excess levels of led in the
body. I thought I would pass along this information for those on the email
list who live in flint.

Warm regards,

It is remarkable to me that the NFB list serve has not been used to get
resources to blind citizens of Genesee County.

It is more remarkable that all I get from BSBP are lying press releases and
FOIA responses.
