Please use these resources to learn more about systemic inequalities and access to clean drinking water. In addition, you can find a water drop toolkit, numbers, addresses, and groups that can help you in areas of mental health, shelter, or food and water. 


If you’re an organizer that’s working to combat water inaccessibility in unhoused communities and see a way in which we can support your work with our resources, please contact us at!
