From Strathmore's website:
Do you know where the water you consume daily comes from? Join us for a pre-concert panel discussion to learn about the waterways that sustain life in the DMV. Local river leaders will share about the health of our water sources, focusing primarily on the Anacostia and Potomac Rivers.
You’ll learn about the positive effects of renewal and conservation efforts, and ways that we can contribute to keeping these precious resources safe and healthy into the future. The panel will also identify the diverse communities that engage directly with the Anacostia and Potomac Rivers. How are they disproportionately affected by water pollution and mitigation strategies? What can we learn from them about environmental justice, conservation strategies, and sustainable development of this critical natural resource?
Explore the complex social and ecological factors that affect our region’s waterways, and how you can support environmental sustainability and justice.
