Clean Water for All (CWfA) is a national non-profit organization started in 2016 to meet the need for a single, comprehensive coalition that advocates for national clean water protections, which in turn benefit watersheds across the country. LWV UMRR participates in CWfA in two ways - as a member of the Mississippi River Network, which is in turn a member of CWfA, and through the individual participation of LWV UMRR Secretary Tamara Prenosil.
On February 6, at 1pm, Jenifer Collins, Director of Clean Water for All, will speak to LWV UMRR. She will give an overview of the CWfA coalition, and describe their work in advocating for clean water, equity and climate. This program will give valuable insights into the development and workings of a national network seeking to influence public policy, and how they built an effective coalition to bring this about.
CWfA is a national network that brings together organizations to build and utilize collective power to advance equitable policies that increase access, affordability, and strong protections of clean water across the nation. They envision every community having safe and affordable clean water that supports thriving communities, healthy ecosystems, cultural resources, and wildlife. Their work focuses in three issue areas: federal policy, infrastructure and agricultural pollution. Equity and Climate are integral to all three areas.
The February 6 meeting is open to all League members and members of the public. Click the button below to register. Registrants will receive a return email confirming registration, and the link to join the meeting will be re-sent the day before the event.
