The world’s water crisis will be front and centre on Capitol Hill in Washington tonight and tomorrow.
Maude Barlow will be part of a teach-in and rally happening as part of “Fire Drill Fridays.” The events, hosted by activist and actress Jane Fonda, are “inspired by Greta Thunberg and the youth climate strikes as well as Reverend Barber’s Moral Mondays and Randall Robinson’s often daily anti-apartheid protests.”
The teach-ins are being held to bring concerned citizens “closer to the epicenter of the fight for our climate” as people demand immediate and urgent action from their political representatives. Tonight's teach-in will be live-streamed on Facebook at 7:00 p.m. EST. Tomorrow's rally takes place on the Southeast Lawn starting at 11 a.m. EST.
