Herscher to Speak about Water Justice in Detroit at Stanford University

Associate Professor Andrew Herscher will speak at the Center for Comparative Studies of Race and Ethnicity at Stanford about the ways in which the struggle for the right to water in Detroit, solicited by the city’s ongoing water shut-off campaign, fits within the long history of settler colonialism—a history in which access to water has continually been based on white privilege and so a history in which people of color have had to continually struggle for water as part of their continuing struggle for life.
