From the Newsfeed: PNCWA Statement Against Racism

"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." — Martin Luther King Jr.

PNCWA believes that the right to clean water and sanitation is a basic human right, just like the right to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. Recent events have shown us that we cannot talk about protecting human health and the environment without addressing the thread of social injustice that we operate in each day.
