Trinity Institute 2017: Water Justice
March 22, 2017 @ 8:00 am - March 24, 2017 @ 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.
