The World Health Organization predicts that by 2025, half of the world’s population will be living in water-stressed areas. It is then of no surprise that corporations have been moving to privatize fresh water resources, procuring mass amounts of arable land, and threatening the food and water sovereignty of communities around the world. 

We believe communal ownership over natural resources and food sovereignty are the paths forward to ensuring healthy and sustainable communities. We are committed to supporting communities and grassroots organizations fighting for these rights.
