NEW COLOR OF WATER DIRECTORY
This interactive, searchable database features over 70 experts of color with deep and diverse expertise about a wide-range of water issues.
New Directory Featuring Water Experts of Color
The Color of Water initiative was created by the Water Hub to build voice and visibility for people of color in the water movement. Our goal is to connect reporters with a more diverse set of experts, and build capacity for these experts to elevate the stories of their communities, which have often been left out of conversations around water.
From water access and drought response in the West to lead pipes and PFAS pollution in the Great Lakes to recurring flooding and water infrastructure failures in the South, Color of Water members have deep expertise and first-hand experience on water challenges and solutions all across the country.
This is why we’re offering a growing list of over 70 expert spokespeople including:
- underrepresented voices of Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian and Pacific Islander, and other people of color (including LGBTQ2S+ people of color)
- different types of expertise and ways of knowing including lived experience, traditional practices, and ancestral knowledge
- people who work in fields that intersect with water, like health, farming, housing, forest management, urban development, spirituality, and more
