Since news on the toxic water crisis in Flint, Michigan broke nationally, safe water and sanitation have been at the forefront of efforts to raise awareness of and protect poor and marginalized communities affected by substandard living conditions. Trinity Wall Street is hosting a one-day event, “Not Just Flint: Water Crises and Inequality in the United States” on Saturday, February 4th at 10 A.M to discuss what is happening a year later in Flint and in similar communities across the country. The event will bring together keynote speakers and panelists to spark dialogue about how faith communities can make a difference.
The event will feature video interviews and stories of our Episcopal partners working in response to the Flint Water Crisis including the Rev. Dan Scheid of St. Paul’s, Flint; the Very Rev. Jay Gantz of St. Andrew’s, Flint; Craig Leavitt of Crossover Downtown Outreach Ministries; Danielle Brown, formerly of Christ Enrichment Center; and Bishop Ousley.
This event will act as a lead-in to the broader conversation about water justice that will continue at Trinity Institute’s 2017 Conference this March.
