Join John Lipscomb, Riverkeeper Vice President for Advocacy and Captain, and philosopher Vishwa Adluri for a conversation on what rights rivers should inherently have. If a river had the same legal rights as a person, would we do a better job of protecting its ecosystem? And how might this legalistic approach intersect with traditional customs and rituals for sacred places?

Tickets required: $25/person
