Introductory Profile: About Dustin Breithaupt

In 2007, Dustin Beithhaupt -- a fairly young, white man -- moved into the house he lives in now and discovered that there were several problems with public services on his street. People (usually with darker skin) had complained, but the city failed to actually take the next step and fix those problems until he complained. Then city was suddenly interested in the problems. The main problem on the street was a lack of water in the homes. The City of Austin delivered water in large containers to the homes rather than fixing the problems until Dr. Breithaupt persisted in asking that the water delivery system be fixed.
