Interfaith Forum Tackles Texas Water

FROM THE TAG-TEAMING INTERFAITHS TO WATER-AWARE SAN ANTONIANS (AND REGIONAL COLLABORATORS):

“Water management has emerged as one of the most critical natural resource issues of our time.  ‘Water is the next oil,’ a phrase that yields 539 million Google hits, underscores the complexity of battles already being waged over conflicting demands, declining supply, and appropriate policy regarding the conservation and equitable distribution of water.”

THE TEXAS INTERFAITH CENTER and San Antonio Interfaith Power & Light are both committed to awareness, education, and action on vitally important water issues that we all face, now and in the time to come.

  1. Greg, I am involved with the small outpost of Interfaith Power and Light here in Fort Worth. Mostly we send emissaries to the Dallas meetings but occasionally get a group together here, usually at the Unitarian churches or my church University Christian.
