Ann Arbor, Michigan
Showering is a private act, but we rely on public utilities to do that. To build solidarity between Flint and Ann Arbor, Flint activists asked Ann Arbor residents to open up their homes to allow them to take a shower. Through a matching process, Flint activists met with their Ann Arbor hosts to take a shower before collectively meeting at Governor Snyder's condo. Washing Away Snyder's Sins was a performance protest that took a dialogical approach to protest as both a public and private act. Collaborators included Michigan Nurses Association, Flint Rising, Flint and Ann Arbor Solidarity Network, and LEO Union.
