    SWIGS Stands in Solidarity

    The Students of the Water Institute Graduate Section stands in solidarity in the fight for Black and Indigenous lives in Canada and across the globe. Black and Indigenous lives are threatened at gunpoint, while their communities are disproportionately burdened with environmental pollution and unsafe drinking water. As students and researchers studying water, we need to acknowledge that unless we take deliberate anti-racist action, we will continue to uphold a culture of white supremacy and colonialism.
