50 years of Earth Month: 50 years of environmental justice

This marks the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day – and who could have imagined what kind of world we are experiencing now?

In April we have partnered with some amazing people and organizations who have given generously of their time and expertise to provide the following events at no cost to attendees. Bookmark our page as we are adding new events all the time. Our live attendance space is limited to 195 but we will be posting recordings here and in our WasteWater Education YouTube Channel

Catherine Flowers, a past WasteWater Education Board member, is a Franklin Center for the Humanities Practitioner in Residence.Based in Montgomery, Alabama, she is a fierce advocate for the under served and largely ignored working poor.
In this lecture, as part of our Earth Month series of public outreach events, Catherine will reflect on the disparity of progress made in the past 50 years of the environmental movement – a disparity still in evidence today.

Catherine is also an internationally recognized advocate for the human right to water and sanitation as expressed in the UN Sustainable Development Agenda.
In 2019 she testified before the US House Committee.
She is a Professor of Practice at Duke University.
