Alabama Water Rally 2023
Alabama’s annual gathering of clean water advocates
March 24 – 26 | Camp Beckwith in Fairhope, AL
There is an incredible opportunity before us – as River Defenders – as we pass the 50th anniversary of the Clean Water Act. Together, we must be ready for the Next Era of Clean Water Protection and capitalize on this moment.
With unprecedented federal investment in water and wastewater infrastructure and significant incentives for moving toward clean energy and transportation, the time is now to come together, get informed and plan for how we will act collectively to ensure Alabama’s communities and ecosystems are not left out of the conversation. How we embrace this opportunity and respond to the challenges in the next few years could mean the difference between making the enormous shift we need to address climate change or leaving the fate of impacted communities and ecosystems vulnerable to the continued status quo. Join ARA and our partners at Alabama Water Rally 2023 as we empower our movement with the tools and the allies to mobilize for this moment!
