Communities across the U.S. are addressing drinking water challenges, from systems coping with droughts or flooding, to people troubled by their tap water’s safety or affordability. Public passion for safe, affordable, accessible drinking water is also fueling organizing and advocacy in and across rural and urban places. The landscape of drinking water work is broad and varied, as are the responses being supported by foundations.
Please join us for a conversation on drinking water challenges, safety, affordability, and access.
