The Water Justice Confluence is a two-day virtual gathering December 11-12 that supports dialogue and engagement around water justice with upcoming generations of youth, people of color and Indigenous people.

Its goal is to build alliances for water justice, environmental justice and youth justice along the Hudson River and beyond, as well as to inspire future actions.

The event culminates the first year of the Water Justice Lab in North Troy, a three-year project launched this year by Media Sanctuary in partnership with Riverkeeper.

Register here for one or both days of the event.

The first evening will end with a live musical performance by hip-hop artist Mistah Jayohcee, a First Nations Mohawk Warrior.

On Day 2 – Saturday evening, December 12 – the event continues with an open dialogue, Water Justice Confluence: Youth Future.
