At our event 10 Years Strong and Moving Forward, community partners, allies, agency officials, local elected officials and our extended CWC familia came together to celebrate how far we've come as a water justice movement. Speakers included Lucy Hernandez of West Goshen; Tomas Garcia of East Porterville; Gita Kapahi, Director of Public Participation at the State Water Resources Control Board; Arsenio Mataka, Assistant Secretary for Environmental Justice and Tribal Affairs at CalEPA; and CWC's Board President Genoveva Islas-Hooker. Thank you to our speakers, sponsors, and everyone who came out to celebrate with us!
