Support Needed : Eryn Wise - Navajo Nation Needs Assistance / This week there was a mining waste spill that occurred near Durango, CO.


Eryn Wise - Hi everyone - This week there was a mining...:

Hi everyone -

This week there was a mining waste spill that occurred near Durango,
CO. Three million gallons of toxic waste was released into the Animas
River which directly impacts water supplies being funneled into Arizona
and Utah. Currently, the people seeing the most impact live in remote
locations on the Navajo Reservation and rely completely on well water
and water shipments from neighboring towns.

Because of this
spill, many of the well intakes have been shut off which means NO
incoming water for remote communities. In addition, neighboring
communities have less water to ship out to those in need as their
resources have been limited as well.

I'll be going back home to
New Mexico soon and I'd like to take water donations to drop off on my
way. If you'd like to drop off a case or gallon bottle of water for me
to take up on my trip, I'd appreciate it!

*ALSO* if you'd like to
toss $5 my way so that I can buy the water in NM, that works too. Any
and all donations help as this is a dire situation for people who, at
this point, have no access to clean and safe drinking water.
My Venmo is: @erynwise

*SO EVERYONE KNOWS* My donations will be taken to the Navajo Tribal
Utility Authority at Fort Defiance. I've spoken with their District
Manager to arrange drop off.
