Meet Miguel A. De La Torre, author of Trouble the Water | Ecojustice, Water, and Environmental Racism. Gonna Trouble the Water considers the sacred nature of water and the ways in which it is weaponized against non-white communities. Firmly grounded at the intersection of environmentalism and racism, Gonna Trouble the Water makes clear the message: to deny water is to deny life.
