TRINITY INSTITUTE 2017: WATER JUSTICE

March 22–24, 2017

 

Water is a gift. Water is life. As water crises increase, access to safe and clean drinking water decreases.

From Flint to Standing Rock, many of today’s most pressing social issues revolve around water. Faith communities worldwide can help.

Join us at the Cathedral as we live-stream Water Justice, a global conference held in New York City and webcast all over the world. With a sharp focus on the need for water justice initiatives in areas of access, droughts, pollution, rising tides and flooding, Trinity Institute aims to offer actionable guidance for individuals, congregations and the larger faith community surrounding these issues.

Trinity Institute’s annual conference is in its 46th year and equips clergy and laypeople for imaginative and catalytic leadership. Each year, Trinity Institute presents emerging and inclusive theological and social perspectives and engages participants in inquiry, dialogue, and reflection. Live-stream speakers include: Senator Barbara Boxer; The Archbishop of Polynesia, Winston Halapua; Former UN Senior Advisor Maude Barlow; Christiana Z. Peppard, Fordham University; and Katharine Hayhoe, director of the Climate Science Center at Texas Tech University.

Local speakers will include:

Why Water Justice?

Access to clean water is an essential human right, yet such access is increasingly compromised by droughts, pollution, rising tides, and flooding. These effects of climate change are most tangibly felt by the very people the Gospel urges us to look to—the marginalized and the vulnerable.

This conference, infused with spiritual principles and common prayer along with science and solutions, allows us to deeply examine what connects us, and empowers us to take unified, faith-based action on the front lines of the water justice movement.
