March 22 is World Water Day, an international observance of global issues related to water justice and sanitation.

To commemorate the day and educate others about these critical issues, Fordham’s water expert Christiana Peppard, PhD, assistant professor of theology, will join an interactive panel at the Untied Nations headquarters in New York City. The panel, “Women, Water, and Wellbeing: The Human Right to Water and Sanitation,” will address the intersection of women’s justice and the basic human right to water and sanitation.

Listen to Peppard explain what it means to seek water justice means and why this issue impacts women in particular.
