Tuesday, August 11 – Water is Life: Environmental Justice in Alabama & Beyond with Catherine Flowers
Join us Tuesday as we talk with Catherine Flowers, the founder of the Center for Rural Enterprise and Environmental Justice. From Lowndes County, Alabama to the United Nations, Catherine’s internationally recognized advocacy focuses on the intersection of race, justice and the human right to clean water and sanitation. She will discuss her work to raise awareness and seek solutions for these issues in long-ignored rural America as highlighted in her upcoming book, Waste: One Woman’s Fight Against America’s Dirty Secret.
ABOUT THE WATER IS LIFE SERIES
Each Tuesday, starting on Rivers of Alabama Day (April 14), we invite you to join us from noon – 1 pm for this virtual get-together…with a purpose! We will be highlighting the role that water plays in our lives throughout Alabama and we will share how you can participate in the efforts to protect water, even in this new “normal”. You’ll hear from our partners across the state, and leading experts in water protection. We’ll even have a few river history lessons thrown in!
