Affordable Water For All

Water is a human right and necessary for our public health. Every Californian needs access to safe, clean, and affordable drinking water. The pandemic has impacted communities across the state and has exacerbated the issue of water access & affordability. Clean Water Action advocates for short & long-term solutions to #KeepTheWaterFlowing for all Californians.

Water Affordability in California

Every Californian should have access to affordable safe drinking water. Yet our water system is at risk of failing Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) communities, right when we need it most to slow the spread of COVID-19.

I joined Clean Water Action almost a year ago in March, at the beginning of the pandemic and the first shelter in place order in California. At the time, there was (and still is) a lot of uncertainty about the future and the extent to which our current ways of being and systems would be impacted. I came into this work with a background in environmental justice and intersectional approach to social, racial, and environmental issues.
