Happy World Water Day!

We join water protectors and activists from across the world in a call to accelerate change to solve the water and sanitation crisis. We’ll be sharing links to events and calls to action throughout the day in our social media stories, as well as links to recent episodes from our State of Water podcast featuring inspiring conversations with grassroots leaders and changemakers from across Michigan.

Title Track is a proud member and participating organization of PolicyLink’s Water Equity and Climate Resilience Caucus (WECR), an assembly of environmental justice activists from around the country. We join the WECR’s World Water Day campaign of Water Is A Human Right and encourage you to read and share the powerful new opinion piece published today in Common Dreams by #WECRCaucus leaders We the People of Detroit’s Monica Lewis-Patrick and Community Water Center’s Susana De Anda.

“Water isn’t a commodity to be sold to only those that can pay. It’s a basic right our government must provide to all residents.

On World Water Day, policy makers have a job to do. We can make progress right now by getting water infrastructure dollars to places with the most pressing water injustices, like Detroit and the Central Valley, and funding water bill assistance for lower-income families. In the long run, we need to follow the leadership of local communities, sustain investment in our water systems, end water shutoffs, and make a national commitment to water affordability.

Only then can we say water is a human right in the United States.”
