From May 10 to May 12, 2023, 60 Water Equity & Climate Resilience (WECR) Caucus core members and allies gathered on unceded Tongva land in Los Angeles, California. This in-person convening — the first since the start of the pandemic — was an important time to reflect on how the Caucus has grown and evolved, with the goal of prioritizing frontline needs, voices, and solutions, and making space for our relationships with each other and with water. Participants represented 30 organizations and traveled from 14 states and Washington, D.C.
