Trinity Institute 2017: Water Justice

March 22 @ 8:00 amMarch 24 @ 5:00 pm

$100 — $300

Water is a gift. Water is life. As water crises increase, access to safe and clean drink­ing water decreas­es.

From Flint to Stand­ing Rock, many of today’s most press­ing social issues revolve around water. Faith com­mu­ni­ties world­wide can help.


Be part of Trin­i­ty Insti­tute 2017: Water Jus­tice, a glob­al con­fer­ence held in New York City and web­cast all over the world. With a sharp focus on the need for water jus­tice ini­tia­tives in areas of access, droughts, pol­lu­tion, ris­ing tides, and flood­ing, Trin­i­ty Insti­tute aims to offer action­able guid­ance for indi­vid­u­als, con­gre­ga­tions, and the larg­er faith com­mu­ni­ty sur­round­ing the­se issues. This year we’ll hear from Bar­bara Box­er, Chris­tiana Zen­ner Pep­pard, Win­ston Hala­pua, Thabo Mak­goba, Katharine Hay­hoe, Maude Bar­low, David Toomey, Kim Stan­ley Robin­son, and oth­ers.

Trin­i­ty Institute’s annu­al con­fer­ence is in its 46th year and equips cler­gy and laypeo­ple for imag­i­na­tive and cat­alyt­ic lead­er­ship. Each year, Trin­i­ty Insti­tute presents emerg­ing and inclu­sive the­o­log­i­cal and social per­spec­tives and engages par­tic­i­pants in inquiry, dia­logue, and reflec­tion.

The con­fer­ence is spon­sored by Trin­i­ty Church Wall Street, an Epis­co­pal parish in Low­er Man­hat­tan. Recent Trin­i­ty Insti­tutes have addressed racial jus­tice (2016) and eco­nom­ic inequal­i­ty (2015).

Par­tic­i­pants from all faith per­spec­tives are wel­comed to attend in NYC, find a part­ner site near you, or host as a Part­ner Site. Any­one is wel­come to down­load the free cus­tom Study Guide for Lent 2017 when it becomes avail­able.

Pay the full price of $500 (the cost to provide Trin­i­ty Insti­tute 2017) or a dis­count­ed rate of either $300 or $100—whichever rate you can afford. All fees grant com­plete con­fer­ence access.
