My research on human rights-related local issues in Dayton has heightened my awareness of the region’s assets and challenges. Regardless of a country’s progress toward development, such issues are present and need to be addressed in order to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. The greater Dayton region has suffered from challenges related to clean water access and water pollution, but the region is also supported by assets which involve the community in clean water and sanitation advocacy. Such assets need to be expanded upon in order to ensure further community engagement in water-related issues. Diverse voices should be represented in the management of water related issues in the Greater Dayton region as all Daytonians are affected by the outcome of such management.
