Water is a gift. Water is life. As water crises increase, access to safe and clean drinking water decreases. From Flint to Standing Rock, many of today’s most pressing social issues revolve around water. Faith communities worldwide can help. Be part of Trinity Institute 2017: Water Justice, a global conference held in New York City and webcast at Cathedral of the Incarnation in Baltimore, MD. With a sharp focus on the need for water justice initiatives in areas of access, droughts, pollution, rising tides, and flooding, Trinity Institute aims to offer actionable guidance for individuals, congregations, and the larger faith community surrounding these issues. This year we’ll hear from Barbara Boxer, Christiana Peppard, Winston Halapua, Thabo Makgoba, Katharine Hayhoe, Maude Barlow, David Toomey, Kim Stanley Robinson, and others. Why Water Justice? Access to clean water is an essential human right, yet such access is increasingly compromised by droughts, pollution, rising tides, and flooding. These effects of climate change are most tangibly felt by the very people the Gospel urges us to look to—the marginalized and the vulnerable. This conference, infused with spiritual principles and common prayer along with science and solutions, allows us to deeply examine what connects us, and empowers us to take unified, faith-based action on the front lines of the water justice movement.  Why attend Trinity Institute 2017?
