Jackson Water Crisis: Two Virtual Sessions for Organizations & Community Responders

Let’s make sure recovery support stays equitable in Mississippi.

Several communities across Jackson are still recovering from the water crisis. For organizations, community leaders, and recovery teams still responding to the water crisis, we invite you to participate in two virtual sessions to help bolster recovery efforts.

Why Join?

The Project On Government Oversight (POGO), a national nonprofit based in Washington, D.C., will lead these sessions, providing detailed information on the current state of the water crisis as well as insight into where we can build advocacy efforts.

Topics include:

  • Infrastructure spending
  • Updates on the water crisis
  • Tips for capacity building

Session Details

The first session will take place Monday, June 24 from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. (CT) and focus on the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

Register FREE

The second session will take place on Friday, June 28 from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. (CT) and focus on current infrastructure spending and updates.

During each session, POGO Senior Investigator Nick Schwellenbach will provide a brief on the EPA and the Jackson Water Crisis. This information plays a valuable role in painting a full picture of the water crisis and where advocacy can ensure recovery efforts remain equitable, just, and effective across the state.

Don’t forget to refer a fellow leader or organization to join the session!
