  • Film Screening: Tapped

    March 2nd, 2017, 7:00pm — 10:00pm

    Join us for a screening of the film Tapped, to be followed by an expert panel discussion. 

    By 2030, the United Nations estimates two-thirds of the world will lack access to clean drinking water. Tapped illustrates the impact of the global water crisis on America and what we can do as individuals to enact change sooner rather than later. Tapped examines the role of the bottled water industry and its effects on our health, climate change, pollution, and our reliance on oil.
