Get Involved - Investing in FRk's Work
Flint Riverkeeper thoughtfully leverages available methods of remedy, exercising the rights afforded to the citizens of the United States to engage in public processes, protect private property and rights, and insure public benefits of the health and value of our river system. Flint Riverkeeper’s board of directors, established and governed by by-laws, meets more than ten times per year to discuss programmatic issues, oversee strategic policy initiatives, develop and support a budget, and insure adherence to internal schedules and controls.
Flint Riverkeeper staff is a dedicated group of well-educated and experienced professionals, steeped in advocacy for water resources and southern culture. Flint Riverkeeper was established in the financial storm of the Great Recession, at a time when the Board felt there was no other choice than to launch advocacy for the Flint due to an avalanche of destructive proposals and out-of-control government actions that were bleeding dry the river’s and her tributary creek’s and aquifer’s resources. FRk has weathered the storm, has accomplished much, and is a strong, stable organization who’s influence is strengthened by our vast network of supporters and allies.
There is much work left to do. Let’s do it together!
