THE BETTER WATTS INITIATIVE (BWI): A collaborative for environmental justice in Watts

​WLCAC launched the "Better Watts" Initiative in 2016 with our partners Black Community Health Task Force, Physicians for Social Responsibility LA, LA Right to Housing Collective and Cal State University, Dominguez Hills. The BWI, is a collaborative of community members and groups organized for environmental justice in Watts.

Our first Town Hall meeting, was held on January 31, 2016 and introduced community members to the issues around the lack of sufficient clean air, land and water. Our second Town Hall meeting occurred on Thursday, March 31, 2016 and provided an update of progress around soil testing at the Jordan Downs Housing Projects. Our third Town Hall meeting, held on May 7, 2016, illustrated the lack of clean water in local households that border Central Avenue and the railroad right of ways. Check back for details about the next town hall meeting.

MASK MAKING WORKSHOP ENJOYED BY ALL
