Access to safe, affordable water is a human right

UUSC's Environmental Justice Program promotes and defends the human right to water. The human right to water entitles everyone to safe,sufficient, accessible, and affordable water for personal and domestic use. To achieve this goal, UUSC supports civil society and grassroots groups in the struggle against water privatization and depletion, and promotes citizen involvement in the utilization and management of water as a common resource. UUSC works to influence government policies related to environmental justice and mobilize activists to hold government, agencies, and socioeconomic elites accountable for water-rights violations.
