Here is the inspiring story of how Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, alongside
a team of researchers, parents, friends, and community leaders,
discovered that the children of Flint, Michigan, were being exposed
to lead in their tap water—and then battled her own government and
a brutal backlash to expose that truth to the world. Paced like a
scientific thriller, What the Eyes Don’t See reveals how
misguided austerity policies, broken democracy, and callous
bureaucratic indifference placed an entire city at risk. And at the
center of the story is Dr. Mona herself—an immigrant, doctor,
scientist, and mother whose family’s activist roots inspired her
pursuit of justice.
What the Eyes
Don’t See is a riveting account of a shameful disaster that
became a tale of hope, the story of a city on the ropes that came
together to fight for justice, self-determination, and the right to
build a better world for their—and all of our—children.
