WELL has partnered with AAPI UnTapped Fellowship graduates and local elected officials to plan, organize, and recruit for the WELL – AAPI UnTapped Fellowship Program with the aim of educating local AAPI (Asian American and Pacific Islander) elected officials, providing a foundation of water knowledge in order to help them be better prepared to tackle California’s water crisis. Through interviews and statewide watershed visits, fellows will have a deeper understanding of the impacts of today’s water challenges on their constituents and hear forward-thinking solutions designed by other California leaders. Through this fellowship, AAPI elected officials will enhance their water knowledge and leadership skills, allowing them to take more effective action on water policy issues and assist in solving the state’s increasing water challenges.
Thank you to our Associate Members, AARP of California, The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, Valley Water, and The Water Replenishment District of Southern California! To learn more about the WELL Associate Membership and how to join, please review our Associate Membership page.
