Water is important for indigenous & Black communities across the globe as it represents a social, cultural, and spiritual significance for them (Abate et.al. 2013). This is what motivates Indigenous & Black to conduct water restoration in their communities. For example, rural tribes in the state of Washington are leading and implementing a lot of mitigation and restoration projects to protect salmon habitats. Residents in Flint, Michigan are creating community solutions to address their water crisis.
At Piña Soul, we honor & acknowledge the significance of water to Indigenous & Black communities. As a result, one of the fields we address in conservation is water management. Through our Eco-Community Grants we will fund water management projects led or created to benefit Indigenous & Black communities.
Our Eco-Warrior Community Grants: Water Restoration will open soon.
