July 2022 Newsletter

As drought conditions continue due to climate change, and we begin to see the effects of aridification in the Southwest U.S., we need leadership and action to ensure our ability to meet future water demands. WELL will continue to address these challenges by educating local Latino elected officials about water challenges with the aim of achieving water equity in our communities and all of California. 

The WELL UnTapped Fellowship Program is our primary means of delivering this education. Three graduates of the Class of 2022 UnTapped Fellowship program held a regional water workshop on Saturday, July 23 in Pico Rivera. The workshop was a great success as it brought together several elected officials to learn about regional water challenges and the actions needed to address them. The July event marked just the first of several workshops the UnTapped Fellowship Class of 2022 will host throughout California this year.
