Join Us January 9
We hope to see you next Friday, January 9 as we mark the one-year anniversary of the Elk River chemical leak with a series of workshops and events at the WV Culture Center on the State Capitol Grounds in Charleston.
All events are free, open to the public, and organized by WV Rivers Coalition and other members of the WV Safe Water Roundtable - a coalition involving 28 organizations formed in the wake of the chemical spill that contaminated the Elk and left 300,000 West Virginians without usable water.
January 9 Schedule of Events:
3:00 - 5:00 p.m. Citizen Education Workshops - get the latest updates on water policy issues and how you can be involved. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
5:00 - 6:00 p.m. Evening reception with comments from dignitaries. Join us for light refreshments and hear from political leaders who have stood for clean water this year.
6:15 - 7:15 p.m. Honoring the Waters candlelight vigil at the Kanawha River in front of the Capitol.
7:30 - 9:00 p.m. Reception and world premier screening of Elk River Blues at the WV Culture Center Theater by award-winning news producer Mike Youngren. His film features West Virginians’ response to systemic failures that continue to threaten our water.
It all takes place in and around the WV Culture Center, Capitol Complex, 1900 Kanawha Blvd. E., Charleston WV 25305.
Help us spread the word! This is a time to celebrate the “silver lining” of the crisis: people coming together, a new spirit of clean water activism, and new policies to protect water – see you there!
