We’re back with a new season of State of Water! On our first new episode of 2021, episode 21, we are highlighting the theme of youth empowerment. We the People of Detroit is a community-based, grassroots organization that aims to inform, educate, and empower Detroit residents on imperative issues surrounding civil rights, land, water, education, and the democratic process. The organization created a Youth Internship Program where young people participate in four to eight weeks of action, learning, and service. In this episode, the amazing Title Track intern Annie Lively hosts a conversation with Brooke Bowers and Javaye Henry, two Detroiters who volunteered for the Internship with We the People. That’s right folks! It’s high time we let the Interns take over the show!

State of Water is a program of the Michigan-based non-profit organization Title Track, and is powered by the Clean Water Campaign for Michigan. The podcast is made possible through a generous contribution from the Esperance Foundation.
