Texas Impact's Sam Brannon is among the presenters at the Trinity Institute 2017 Water Justice Conference to commemorate World Water Day. The event will be held on March 22-24, 2017, live in New York City and webcast around the world.
World Water Day is coordinated by UN-Water in collaboration with governments and partners around the world. The day focuses on taking action to tackle the global water crisis. Action is needed now more than ever, as climate change’s effects on the global water cycle threaten to increase the water crisis. 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.
To commemorate World Water Day, faith communities worldwide will lift their voices to draw attention to our obligation to care for God’s sustaining gift of water in all its forms. In addition to Texas Impact's Sam Brannon, environmentalists and theologians who will speak at the conference include Barbara Boxer, Christiana Zenner Peppard, Winston Halapua, Thabo Makgoba, Katharine Hayhoe, Maude Barlow, David Toomey, Kim Stanley Robinson, and others.
