WATER & CLIMATE ADVOCACY

 Water For People

2.1 billion people around the world don't have access to safe water and 4.5 billion lack access to adequate sanitation. Women and children spend more than four hours walking for water each day, and more than 840,000 people die each year from water-related diseases. Water For People exists to promote the development of high-quality drinking water and sanitation services, accessible to all, and sustained by strong communities, businesses, and governments. We're working to reach Everyone Forever.

ART & SOCIAL JUSTICE

100 Stone Project

100 Stone Project is a statewide creative civic engagement and social art project that facilitated the capture of hundreds of Alaskans' personal stories of wellness management in sculptural form. At its zenith, the project installed a population of 85 human figures into the tidal beach at Point Woronzof Overlook Park, walking into the icy waters of the Inlet. Each figure was sculpted from and by people who are directly affected by persistent emotional pressures.
