March 22nd is World Water Day - a day when water activists from all over the world come together to work towards water justice. To celebrate, the Our Water Campaign and the Clean Rivers Campaign are joining forces to host a Water Activist Training and Water Lobby Days!
Our local elected officials have critical decisions to make about Pittsburgh’s water future:
• Should a corporation have control over Pittsburgh’s drinking water again?
• Should we pass up an opportunity to invest hundreds of millions of dollars
in green infrastructure that will create jobs, mitigate dangerous flooding,
and help stop basement backups?
• Should our region make sure no child has to drink lead-tainted water?
Join the Campaign and fellow water activists on March 23rd for a campaign training where you’ll get to learn more about these and other critical water issues, strategize with others before meeting with elected officials, and practice holding your representatives accountable to their constituents.
12-2 p.m. in the Liberty Room of the DHS Building (One Smithfield St., 15222). Please make sure to register online.
