Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton visited Flint on Sunday afternoon to discuss the city's ongoing water crisis.

Clinton spoke at the House of Prayer Missionary Baptist Church in the city to hundreds of people inside.

During her speech, she talked about the water crisis, saying "The road is long, and I know there will be a lot of bumps along it's way, but this is the most important work we are ever called to do."

Earlier this week, it was announced there will be a Democratic presidential debate held in Flint on March 6, just two days before the Michigan primary election.

Clinton also said she looks forward to coming back to Flint to see this community rise again.

"Let's make sure we take care of the people of Flint, and give every child a chance to live up to his or her God-given potential," Clinton said.
