Water & Democracy Forum

Water and Democracy is the enactment of public discourse, public engagement and democratic process for an equitable and just presence as it relates to our most precious resources. This forum will be held November 15, 2019 in Toledo, Ohio at the University of Toledo’s Gillham Hall from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm. During this convening, we will be engaged in and achieve the following:

  • Review policies and information that impact public water systems in Toledo, Detroit and other regions of the world.
  • Learn about the Public Advocacy that is taking place to protect our world as we face a Public Health Crisis
  • Take action! Action is necessary as the harm of lack of information will cripple our communities, families, and our world
