Amariyanna "Mari" Copeny, also known as Little Miss Flint, is a youth activist from Flint, Michigan. She is best known for raising awareness about Flint's ongoing water crisis and fundraising to support underprivileged children in her community and across the country. Mari is currently 13 years old. At the age of 8 she wrote a letter to President Barack Obama challenging him to visit Flint to see the crisis firsthand. The letter was published in the Los Angeles Times and confronted the entire country with the reality faced by victims of state negligence.
