Environmental and Urban Studies Program presents

Water and the Power of Local Organizing

Jason West, Head of Wallkill Alliance

Thursday, October 5, 2017

“Water is Life” has become a rallying cry from Standing Rock to Flint, Newburgh to New Jersey.  The need for water organizing — and the increasing number of people engaged in it — will only grow as aging infrastructure and conservative environmental policies combine to damage our already polluted watersheds. Drawing on twenty years experience in community organizing and local politics, Jason West will discuss the importance of water — and the power to be found locally — through the development of the Wallkill River Watershed Alliance.

Time: 4:40 pm
