Water & Social Justice

Access to clean water is taken for granted in the United States. But after recent discoveries of lead in many municipal water sources around the country, it seems clean water isn't as straight forward as we thought!

Join us for a panel discussion and Q&A with a variety of experts leading the charge towards more equitable water access.

Hack night will still happen this evening, but there will be no new member orientation, and the focus will be on the panel discussion.
