WELL UnTapped Fellowship Water Workshop in the City of Baldwin Park
On October 28, two graduates of the WELL UnTapped Fellowship Program, Class of 2023 Councilmember Manny Acosta, City of South El Monte, and President Dr. Sabrina Bow, Azusa Unified School District, cohosted a water workshop in the City of Baldwin Park with Senator Susan Rubio, District 22, and Assemblymember Blanca Rubio, District 48. There were 40 local Latino leaders in attendance. Topics included a briefing on how water is managed in the San Gabriel Valley and a panel discussion about how we can teach water conservation to the next generation.
The workshop ended with WELL’s tradition of creating a moment of unity by singing the song “De Colores.”
These workshops signify the completion of the UnTapped Fellowship for the graduates and serve to solidify the Fellows’ commitment to sharing their water education with other local elected officials to promote timely and equitable changes that bring sustainable water strategies for all Californians.
