Riverkeeper Update – Dec 20 – Pt 2 – Water Justice Event

Spencer Keable hears from Dan Shapley about the upcoming Water Justice Event being hosted by the Sanctuary for Independent Media this Friday and Saturday. Dan provides some examples of local water justice issues that may come up in discussion during the two-part virtual event.

Water Justice Lab in North Troy, NY hosts “confluence” virtual gatherings with youth environmental justice advocates throughout communities in the Hudson River Watershed.
A land acknowledgement for the Stockbridge Munsee Community by Heather Bruegl sets the stage for the premiere of the water justice documentary “Echoes from Lock One”, a participatory youth production. The screening is followed by an open facilitated dialogue What is Water and Environmental Justice? led by environmental justice mentors with participating youth groups that include Water Justice Lab in Troy, Kingston YMCA Farm Project in Kingston and Groundwork Hudson Valley in Yonkers. The evening will end with a collective performance of “Stay Woke” with Jayohcee, plus a special appearance by activist and hip hop artist Xiuhtezcatl!
