Waterkeeper ® Alliance is a network of clean-water advocates on six continents who are fighting on the front lines of the global water crisis. Waterkeepers work primarily with grassroots organizations that hold a stake in their local water body. These organizations are composed of concerned citizens who know that it is unfair for corporations and governments to abuse publicly-owned and used rivers, estuaries, bays, coasts and lakes. They know that such pollution has dire consequences for the health of humans and the world’s ecosystems. The goal of the Alliance is to bring solidarity, knowledge, training and legal tools to these organizations so that they can fight more effectively for environmental justice.
