WASH Advocacy Day at the US Capitol, March 13

Join together for greater U.S. leadership on safe drinking water and sanitation, Advocacy Day at the US Capitol, March 13.

US residents who support safe drinking water and safe sanitation (WASH) for the world’s poorest people can join us to meet with Congressional offices to let them know that we need greater U.S. leadership for WASH.

  • Access to WASH will prevent her from dying from diarrhea and other water-related illness as a child.
  • It will allow her to attend school instead of spending hours collecting water.
  • It helps her to care for her children, who are also made healthier with reliable access to safe water and sanitation.
  • It helps her to earn an income.

WASH is foundational for healthy and productive families and communities.

Can’t be in DC on March 13? You can conduct Congressional meetings in your U.S. city, too. Just register as an “in-district” participant and we will provide all the information you need to be an effective advocate for vital WASH action.
