Environment central to grassroots political initiative led by students, professor

On Sunday night, Demo­c­ratic pres­i­den­tial can­di­dates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders debated in Flint, Michigan, the city facing a dev­as­tating lead-​​contamination water crisis. For sev­eral North­eastern stu­dents, as well as pro­fessor Daniel Faber, the debate hit home on a very per­sonal level, as the envi­ron­ment is cen­tral to a grass­roots polit­ical initiative—called Envi­ron­men­tal­ists for Bernie.
