WEBCAST: Online Discussion Today on the Water for the World Act

March 12, 2014 by

Water is essential for life. It’s shocking, then, to learn that 768 million people worldwide lack access to safe drinking water.

Join CRS and USCCB for an online discussion today on the Water for the World Act currently in the House of Representatives. This key piece of legislation will ensure that the world’s most marginalized communities remain front and center in efforts to bolster access to water, sanitation, and hygiene education – resources that save and improve lives.

March 12, 12:30-1 PM EST

The agenda includes:

  • An overview of the Church’s ongoing advocacy work to defend the life and dignity of people who are poor and marginalized around the world;
  • An opportunity to learn how you can take action on this issue during the March 13 Day of Action and the upcoming Congressional Recess from March 17-21. 2014; and,
  • A chance to ask questions and engage in dialogue with experts on this issue.
  • Find out what you can do to support the legislation on Thursday’s Day of Action on the Hill and to highlight this issue during next week’s congressional recess.
