ACCESS TO FRESHWATER WILL BE A DEFINING ISSUE FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS.

UPstream, DOWNriver

About

Fresh water. Imagine a day without it...
 

We drink it, bathe in it, swim in it. We use it to grow food, transport goods, generate power, support industry, and provide sanitation. We use it for vacations and recreation. Clean fresh water is vital to keeping our ecosystems healthy and sustaining our human civilization. Yet nearly half of U.S. streams, rivers and lakes are so polluted that they are no longer safe for fishing, swimming or aquatic life.

"Upstream, Downriver" takes viewers into the heart of the battle for water justice. Powerful stories with frontline community activists are interwoven with historical context about landmark regulations that significantly reduced water pollution in the U.S. but failed to serve disadvantaged communities that are hardest hit by today’s climate crisis.
