Join us July 23 for in-person Quarterly Luncheon

June 28, 2021
Fostering inclusivity in our industry and our coalition helps us address issues and solve problems more creatively, and we’ll explore the topic during Southern California Water Coalition’s in-person Quarterly Luncheon on July 23, 2021 at noon at the DoubleTree Hotel (222 N. Vineyard Ave., Ontario, California).
 
“Equity, Access and Affordability” will feature an expert panel 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. 
 
Our expert panel includes:
  • Danielle Coats, Senior Legislative Program Manager, Eastern Municipal Water District
  • Anatole Falagan, Assistant General Manager, Long Beach Water Department
  • Kurt Schwabe, Professor, UC Riverside
  • Mayor Acquanetta Warren, City of Fontana

Approaching this topic asks that we recognize the history of oppression that has resulted in disparities for some communities. We wholeheartedly support and appreciate efforts such as California’s declaration of a Human Right to Water which aims to restore this basic human need. At the same time, we understand the limitations that the state and local agencies may face in addressing these entrenched and complex issues. Yet we know that our coalition is a powerful network of organizations and individuals willing to work to create positive systemic change. We believe that SCWC has a role in this work and that that work can only be done by engaging diverse perspectives and continuing to examine and improve our efforts to be inclusive, act equitably and continue to educate and inform Southern Californians about our water needs and the state’s water resources.
