The Community Water Center (CWC) acts as a catalyst for community-driven water solutions through organizing, education, and advocacy. We seek to build and enhance leadership capacity and local community power around water issues, create a statewide movement for water justice alongside low-income communities and communities of color who do not have access to safe, clean and affordable water. CWC’s vision is for all communities to have access safe, clean, and affordable water. Community Water Center also currently has offices in Visalia and Sacramento.
The Center employs three primary strategies in order to accomplish our goals:
At CWC, we believe that safe, clean, and affordable water is a human right, not a privilege. Our organizing and advocacy work, community collaborations, and organizational culture all reflect a concern for equity, mutual respect, appreciation for diversity, and environmental and social justice. We are looking for candidates who share our values, who bring a willingness to contribute to our mission and to the growth of a new organization, and who are open to developing their skills.
