California’s water management system is broken. This is especially evident in the Bay-Delta and its watersheds. Communities across the state are facing environmental, health, and cultural burdens related to poor water quality and lack of river flows.

This Day of Action will bring representatives of tribal, environmental justice, fishing, and conservation communities from across California to support current legislation that puts California on the path to a sustainable water future.
