Here's another one that's a good example, the Community Water Center.
CWC seeks to ensure that all communities have access to safe, clean and affordable water.
Its mission is to create community-driven water solutions through organizing, education and advocacy in California’s San Joaquin Valley.
The Center employs three primary strategies in order to accomplish our goals:
- Educate, organize and provide legal assistance to low-income, communities of color facing local water challenges.
- Advocate for systemic change to address the root causes of unsafe drinking water in the San Joaquin Valley.
- Serve as a resource for information and expertise on community water challenges.
Of note: Susana De Anda at CWC was chosen as a Petra Fellow, in 2009. Often at risk and without the safety net of personal privilege or institutional support, Petra Fellows fight poverty, discrimination, environmental degradation and violence.
