EJCW works on the front lines of disadvantaged communities throughout California, helping their concerns and needs reach our regional, state, national and global partners. We work in partnership with community leaders, non-profits and government agencies so that we can work together to provide safe, clean, affordable water to everyone in California.
Water is a Human Right.
Access to clean, safe, and affordable water is a fundamental human right essential for a healthy population, environment, and economy. Many communities, particularly those of low-income and communities of color are under-served.

Water justice will only be achieved when inclusive, community-based forms of water management are developed and we address the health and environmental burdens low-income communities and communities of color bear.
