Actress Jane Seymour will join lawmakers in Washington, D.C. tomorrow to raise awareness of the coming global water crisis with the premiere of the film Running Dry. While the worst is almost surely to come, the press release points out that 14,000 people die each day and every 15 seconds a child dies from the lack of clean water and sanitation or water related diseases.

Running Dry was created “to build popular sentiment and create the political will to solve the water crisis through public policy.” Seymour lent her voice to the film’s narration and will also be at the event tomorrow to help bring attention to the issue. Joining her will be Congressman Edward Markey, Chairman, Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming, Congressman Earl Blumenauer, author and sponsor of the Water for the Poor Act, Jim Thebaut, producer of Running Dry, and Patricia Simon, wife of late Senator Paul Simon; who’s work on the issue inspired the film.
