Water Justice: A Global Event
Texas Impact's Sam Brannon is among the presenters at the Trinity Institute 2017 Water Justice Conference to commemorate World Water Day. The event will be held on March 22-24, 2017, live in New York City and webcast around the world.
World Water Day is coordinated by UN-Water in collaboration with governments and partners, and focuses on taking action to tackle the global water crisis. To commemorate World Water Day, the faith communities worldwide will lift their voices to draw attention to our obligation to care for God’s sustaining gift of water in all its forms.
With a sharp focus on the need for water justice initiatives in areas of access, droughts, pollution, rising tides, and flooding, Trinity Institute aims to offer actionable guidance for individuals, congregations, and the larger faith community surrounding these issues. This year we’ll hear from Texas Impact's very own Sam Brannon, who will appear with environmentalists and theologians including Barbara Boxer, Christiana Zenner Peppard, Winston Halapua, Thabo Makgoba, Katharine Hayhoe, Maude Barlow, David Toomey, Kim Stanley Robinson, and others.
