Melissa Scanlan, Director, of the Center for Water Policy at the School of Freshwater Sciences, will provide an introduction.

Our esteemed panelists will speak on critical issues of water justice as we consider the Biden Administration’s Build Back Better infrastructure funding proposal. In cities surrounding the Earth’s largest fresh surface water system, do all people have affordable, clean water?

How have decades of disinvestment in neighborhoods where People of Color predominantly live resulted in lead-tainted water and public health concerns? Join us for a presentation and lively discussion.

Special thanks to sponsors Beans & Barley, MOOI – Tosa, Outpost Natural Foods, Rock the Green and the Urban Ecology Center for donating prizes.
