Half Empty: The Depths of the Global Water Crisis
Human Rights Institute Conference at Kean University
March 24, 2017
8:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
Wilkins Theatre

Turning on the tap and getting clean water to quench our thirst, wash our bodies and cook our food cannot be taken for granted. The United Nations has declared that access to safe and sanitary water is an inalienable human right, yet more than one in 10 people around the world—about 663 million people—lack access to sanitary water. This global crisis is evident locally and around the world in communities facing contamination, infrastructure problems and water scarcity. Together, we can end this threat to human survival.

There is no cost to attend the conference, but online registration is required. Educators are encouraged to bring their students. Space is limited. Learn more at
