Join Public Health Awakened as they discuss the latest updates on the administration’s approach to water “protection,” provide a brief introduction to organizing for environmental justice and water justice, and hear about specific examples from West Virginia and Ohio of community-based organizing and advocacy on water justice issues.

PHA’s goal is to nurture a discussion to identify ways public health can get involved to protect water and the environment.
