Cally Hutson, University of Oregon student intern for the Oregon Water Futures Project

“I am invested in water justice because water cannot be separated from our social and political spheres. With family in Sri Lanka and as a student environmental organizer, I have learned that there is immense racism and injustice surrounding water, particularly in regards to access and impacts from natural disasters. It’s a privilege to engage with rural communities of color in Oregon and participate in research to learn their stories around water; these dialogues could be the beginning of a better and more equitable future for water in our state.”
