Second corporate stand affirming that water is a human right

The Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary (SNJM) take a second corporate stand affirming that water is a human right and a public good. As a result, sisters and associates support political actions and positions that

  • provide all peoples, especially the most vulnerable, with universal and sufficient access to clean drinking water
  • that protect freshwater as a sustainable and renewable resource
  • who achieve the Millennium Development Goals (United Nations)
