Hudson River Watershed Alliance supports the fight against systemic racism. Black Lives Matter.

In solidarity, we observed Blackout Tuesday by postponing Toast to the Tribs, the Hudson River Watershed Alliance’s annual awards benefit, which was originally scheduled for June 2. We recognize “the long-standing racism and inequality that exists from the boardroom to the boulevard. We will not continue to conduct business as usual without regard for Black lives.” #theshowmustbepaused

Hudson River Watershed Alliance’s mission is to unite and empower communities to protect their local water resources. Issues of environmental justice significantly impact our watersheds and our watershed communities. The need for clean water is universal, and too many people – particularly people of color – cannot safely drink the water from their taps, swim in the ponds and streams, or recreate safely. As an organization, our role is to support members of those communities by shining a light on issues of universal significance – health, safety, and equality.
