OUR PURPOSE

Parks and clean water — both are fundamental to healthy communities. With aging facilities, maintenance needs, and chronic underfunding, California's park and water infrastructure is more vulnerable than ever.

Lack of access to outdoor spaces and safe drinking water negatively affects the health and well-being of all Californians, but it's symptomatic of a much more serious issue — inequality. Many low-income neighborhoods and communities have no parks and are disproportionately impacted by exposure to unsafe drinking water.

All Californians deserve access to these vital resources.
