Water is Life: With Dynamite Hill-Smithfield Community Land Trust with Majadi Baruti and Susan Diane Mitchell.
Community leaders and activists all across Alabama are taking matters into their own hands to protect their communities’ right to clean water, public health, and affordable property ownership. Building on an inspiring legacy of civil rights and black entrepreneurship, the Dynamite Hill-Smithfield Community Land Trust is a shining example of this work. Join us Tuesday as we talk with Susan Diane Mitchell and Majadi Baruti about their efforts to achieve permanently affordable housing, food sovereignty and environmental justice for their historic Birmingham community.
ABOUT THE WATER IS LIFE SERIES
Each Tuesday 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. 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!
