By From page A4 | May 08, 2014

On Wednesday, May 14, all are invited to celebrate the Sacramento premiere of “Thirsty for Justice: the Struggle for the Human Right to Water.”

“Thirsty for Justice” is the new documentary film that shares stories of those who lack access to safe, affordable water in California, as well as the story of the movement that made the human right to water the law of the land in California, when Gov. Jerry Brown signed the bill into law in September 2012.

This first public screening is at The California Museum, 1020 O St. in Sacramento, with a community reception at 5:30 p.m. and screening and dialogue with community leaders and filmmakers from 6:16 to 7:45 p.m. Light refreshments will be available.

Tickets are free and donations are welcome at the door.

The screening is presented by the Environmental Justice Coalition for Water and is sponsored by The California Endowment, The Nature Conservancy, the Sacramento Labor Council AFL-CIO, Assemblyman Luis Alejo, Sacramento Vice Mayor Jay Schenirer and Sacramento City Council members Steve Hansen and Kevin McCarty.
