NGOs: San Joaquin's Thirst: attorneypresenting2-8601

Over the past few years, the Community Water Center has organized local residents to raise awareness on the health impacts of drinking water and to advocate at a state and local level for change.  As one outgrowth of CWC's engagement, residents have begun to focus on other issues affecting them by further organizing and tapping into resources that could bring about greater awareness and changes. 

In recent years, residents of Cutler-Orosi (towns in the Central Valley where many immigrant farm workers live) have come together under the group {quote}Vecinos Unidos,{quote} or Neighbors United, and meet regularly in public spaces. 

On the evening when I visited, a local attorney presented on and answered questions regarding immigration policies, no small issue in the San Joaquin Valley.
