The Water Center, the Environmental Justice Working Group sponsored through SoGES, and the Colorado Water Institute hosted a one-day symposium on water equity and environmental justice on October 18, 2017. The day included stories and dialogue with authors, academics, and citizens about their experiences with the privatization of water, water as a human right, and access to safe water and sanitation for everyone. David Archambault II, Chairman of the Standing Rock Indian Reservation, delivered the keynote address on the Dakota Access pipeline conflict. Over 175 faculty, staff, students, and interested citizens participated in the event.
