253 Activists, 119 Organizations: A meeting of the minds at the Citizens' Clean Water Summit

In one place, for one day water quality activists came together from every corner of the state on Saturday, November 16, at the Citizens’ Clean Water Summit.

Why?  To build solidarity between the state’s independent regional water movements, to create a framework for regional and statewide collaboration, and to lay the groundwork for a progression of joint, grassroots mobilization events to bring Florida’s toxic slime disaster straight to the public and the elected officials who represent them.

The Summit was an historic event; for the first time ever representatives of well-known statewide organizations and small local organization volunteers came together to share stories and ideas and explore ways to work together.  We heard from each part of the state and each threatened watershed. 

The plan?  Unite in a common effort to take on the state’s polluted waterways and the “powers that be” that allow the pollution to continue to flow into our beloved waters.

Watch out polluters (and the political interests that protect them)!  We are the organizations and interests involved in the Citizens' Clean Water Summit.  We are committed to working together to fight for clean water:
