“California’s Drought and the Human Right to Water”

Meredith McKenzie

While the media focuses on water regulations, urban vs. agricultural water use, and jet stream rainfall movements, California’s four-year drought is having a devastating effect on disadvantaged communities and their families. In a state where over 10% of its residents, mostly in rural towns and working class cities, have no daily access to potable water, the California water crisis goes far beyond lawn watering and almond growing practices.

Join us on Thursday, June 18, 7:00 p.m. in The Forum at All Saints Church in Pasadena as Meredith McKenzie, California water expert and lecturer at Cal Poly Pomona, talks about the depth and ramifications of the crisis and ways that All Saints members and the community at large can support effective water availability and environmental justice for our poorest citizens.

The event is being cosponsored by Sustainable World, EDEN (Environmental Defense of the Earth Now), Transition Pasadena and the Arroyo Interfaith Environmental Coalition.

All Saints Church is located at 132 North Euclid Avenue, Pasadena 91101
