Climate Conversations – Who Has Access? Water and Life along the Colorado River

November 2, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Access to water is essential for communities across Arizona. Climate change and drought are worsening water issues in the Southwest, especially for many living on the Navajo Nation. How are past water laws, current policies, and recent Supreme Court decisions shaping water rights today? Who has water, and who does not? Join us for a Q&A conversation about tribal water rights and environmental justice with Cora Tso, attorney with Western Resource Advocates. We will talk about the importance of water to life and health for communities on the Navajo Nation, and potential solutions to water inequity.

This livestream program is part of the Climate Conversations series hosted by Arizona Humanities.
