Clean Water Action

Clean Water Action has a million members. Their diverse membership are interested in protecting  our environment, health, economic well-being and community quality of life.

Their goals include clean, safe and affordable water; prevention of health threatening pollution; creation of environmentally safe jobs and businesses; and empowerment of people to make democracy work. Clean Water Action organizes strong grassroots groups and coalitions and campaigns to elect environmental candidates and solve environmental and community problems.
