Binghamton University’s Water Justice Alliance hosted its first World Water Day a cappella show Saturday evening to raise money and awareness for the global water crisis.

WJA, which opened its BU chapter last spring, advocates for the need for clean drinking water worldwide. The event, titled “Voices for Water Justice,” coincided with World Water Day, an international holiday declared by the UN in 1993. World Water Day 2012 took place Thursday, March 22.

World Water Day 2012 focused particularly on the need for clean water to produce food.

“People use water to grow food; we can even measure the water used to make specific food,” said Alexander Sallahian, president of the WJA and a senior majoring in management. “If we send food to people in need, we also help the water crisis.”

The event featured a presentation by Sallahian and performances by Rhythm Method, the Binghamtonics and the Treblemakers.
