We are uniquely positioned to provide that support to these efforts.
We’ve coordinated the Clean Water Network since 2014, and we draw upon more than 40 years of grassroots action and advocacy on clean water and other issues. We run workshops to help local and regional groups become more effective advocates for the waters they care about. We also connect the newer groups within the network with the more advanced, so they can share best practices and resources.
Because our members see firsthand how water pollution affects real people and their communities, the Clean Water Network organized a member fly-in event to D.C. to give our local groups a chance to meet the EPA administrators responsible for their regions. We coordinated briefings with the EPA and Army Corps of Engineers and facilitated strategy meetings to ensure that our member groups left with the knowledge and skills necessary to win back home.
