One person who has been doing that for the city is Little Miss Flint, aka Amariyanna "Mari" Copney, and she needs your help to get to the Women's March in D.C.
Copney was chosen to be a Youth Ambassador for the Women's March in Washington D.C. that takes place the day after Trump's inauguration on Saturday, January 21.
account was created to help Little Miss Flint get to D.C. since she just found out she was selected as a Youth Ambassador and the plane tickets are outrageous. Copney will be the youngest Youth Ambassador at the March, which just makes this even more awesome. Here is an excerpt from her GoFundMe page to show how much Copney has done for the city of Flint.

You may remember when Copney adorably met with President Obama when he visited Flint last year
, and when she met President-elect Trump
in September that wasn't so adorable.
