Community Water Center

Community-driven water solutions through organizing, education, and advocacy

Policy Advocacy & Power Building

CWC’s policy advocacy consists of working collaboratively with local, regional, statewide, national, and even international groups to promote and author legislation and regional and local policies that ensure all communities have access to safe, reliable, and affordable drinking water. Because CWC believes that real change occurs when communities speak for themselves, the Center also works to connect community leaders to participate directly in policy-making processes and utilize the media and other methods to educate policy makers and local representatives.
