Watch On Demand: Equity, Access and Affordability in Water

August 12, 2021

Our expert panel on “Equity, Access and Affordability” in California water is now available for viewing! The panel is also the launch of SCWC’s new Equity, Access and Affordability Task Force to be chaired by Anatole Falagan and Mayor Acquanetta Warren. Wherever you are in California, dealing with equity, access and affordability of water is going to take collaboration and coalition building. We believe Southern California Water Coalition is well-equipped to do this work, given the diversity of membership and the region we are in. We look forward to rolling up our sleeves and facing this issue head-on. This event took place in Ontario, California, on July 23, 2021.

 

About 125 people attended our first in-person event in 18 months to hear from leaders and experts to discuss how we can not only recognize but celebrate the rich diversity of Southern California’s people and cultures and see clearly how we are all connected by the need for a safe, affordable and reliable water supply. The event took place in Ontario, California, and featured this expert panel:
