About the Clean Water for All Coalition

People care deeply about clean water. Our rivers, bays, lakes, and streams are vital to a healthy environment and a vibrant economy, and provide endless opportunities for swimming, fishing, boating, and other recreation. Above all, we need clean, safe drinking water to live.

Public support for commonsense protections for clean water is high and people are more aware than they have been in years to the notion that safe, clean water is not a given, but very much under threat.

From massive proposed cuts to EPA’s budget, which will make it difficult for the agency to protect clean water, to rollbacks of commonsense safeguards for water and public health, the Administration and Congress have been bent on undoing federal clean water protections.

In the face of these threats to the nation’s waters, a broad coalition of organizations has come together to elevate the importance of clean water for everyone through strategic national and regional campaigns that engage people, build our collective political power, and influence decision-makers to create equitable policies. 

We have a vision where every community has access to safe and affordable clean water that supports healthy communities, healthy ecosystems, cultural resources, and wildlife.

Further, we strive to emulate the following principles to guide our work together as we build partnerships and support for strong clean water policies: 

  • Work in collaboration, solidarity and reciprocity
  • Break down systems of oppression
  • Lift up community-informed priorities
  • Remain open to self-transformation

These shared values are important now more than ever, and we recognize that as a Coalition we have work to do to ensure that we are living up to these values. Clean Water for All is committed to ensuring that everyone truly has access to clean water and that we are engaging and elevating communities and constituencies that have been historically excluded from or under-represented at decision-making tables, yet bear the greatest burdens brought on by water pollution and other clean water threats.
