Water is Life: Clean Water Act Celebration with Black Warrior Riverkeeper and Southern Environmental Law Center (SELC).

As we approach the 50th anniversary of the Clean Water Act — one of the most monumental bipartisan laws ever passed by Congress — we find ourselves reflecting on how to celebrate the incredible success of this law, while we are still fighting for its full implementation and enforcement. There is still a major fight to even determine which waters should be included in its protections.  Join us for the RETURN of our monthly Water is Life Zoom Talk series on Tuesday, October 11 from noon – 1 pm featuring Nelson Brooke (Black Warrior Riverkeeper) and Sarah Stokes (Southern Environmental Law Center). We’ll celebrate the successes while discussing the challenges ahead as we #DefendRivers in Alabama.

We’ll continue the celebration of the Clean Water Act that evening in Birmingham at Rojo with films highlighting the role the law has played in protecting Alabama’s waters. ARA and partners will be on hand to answer questions and celebrate this monumental bipartisan law. 10% of the sales of all food and drink will benefit ARA as we #DEfendRivers in Alabama! Stay tuned for more information soon.
