Lies and Lead in Water: UIC Event on Feb. 13th

Chicago, Flint, East Chicago, Detroit, and Milwaukee are just a few of the cities across the nation experiencing an ongoing lead crisis. City and government officials often keep the problems under wraps while concerned community members and organizers fight to bring attention to the crisis.

The UIC Social Justice Initiative and the Freshwater Lab come together to bring you an interactive program that explores the issues of water rights, environmental justice, and the lead pipes jeopardizing the health of Midwest communities. Join us to address these issues with a panel of experts from different fields, a digital activity, and information about what to do about lead pipes in the short and long term future.

Date and Time: Tue, February 13, 2018, 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM CST — Add to Calendar

Location: Student Center East – University of Illinois in Chicago, 750 South Halsted St., Room 302, Chicago, IL 60607 — View Map
