Congressman Elijah Cummings has been a true fighter for economic and social justice's entire congressional career. He recently grilled Gov. Rick Snyder and other state officials over their handling of the Flint water crisis.  He was outraged by Governor Snyder's weak response to the Flint water crisis and attempt to shift responsibility.  "This is not American.  This is not a third world country."  

The 2016 Spirit of Millie awardees are Dessa Cosma, April DeBoer and Jayne Rouse, and Melissa Mays.  Dessa Cosma is a tireless advocate for economic justice and women's rights. April DeBoer and Jayne Rouse wanted to adopt their children as co-parents and took the fight all the way to the United States Supreme Court.  They were plaintiffs in the historic case that made same-sex marriage legal in all states.  Melissa Mays became an activist when her Flint water became toxic and no one in power acknowledged it or took action to fix it.
