Water is a Human Right: IACHR Hearing October 23

The National Lawyers Guild is part of a coalition of U.S. groups that  requested a hearing before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) on domestic violations of the human right to water,  including water shutoffs of indigent residents in Baltimore.

The IACHR granted the hearing request, and the hearing is scheduled to  be held on Friday, October 23, 2015 from 4:15-5:00pm at the General Secretariat Building of the Organization of American States (OAS), in the Padilha Vidal Room (TL Level), 1889 F Street NW, Washington, DC.
