Dear Restore the Delta Friends,
Thank you, thank you, thank you. We have a number of retirees/older supporters from throughout the state who care about sound water policy planning and good government. You stepped up to the plate as we asked during our last webinar and wrote comments, helping our Delta communities which are stretched thin during the pandemic. We are so grateful to all of you.
Our NGO and local government partners did a great job with comments, and we will be posting and sharing those in the days to come.
Today, we are happy to report that two groups of future water leaders in the Delta stepped up, despite the challenges during the pandemic. We would like our followers to read the comments completed by youth advocates with Little Manila Rising, a social and environmental justice organization from South Stockton. You can read those comments here.
In addition, please read comments by one of the Delta’s young farmers and local historian Phillip Merlo. We are very focused on developing the next generation of Delta leadership, and all these fine young adults and youth give us hope.
Please join us for another in our popular webinar series on Wednesday, April 22, 2020 at 11 am.
On the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day, our presenters will examine the legacy of this important day and our online guru will teach you about latest strategies for effective movement building, even in a time of social distancing. The webinar will include the history of Earth Day, the importance of digital activism, and how to increase awareness and activism through one’s digital presence.

Longtime State Capitol watcher, Dan Walters chimes in on the state of California’s water politics today…
“President Donald Trump and California Gov. Gavin Newsom may have set aside their incessant squabbling over most issues to cooperate on the pandemic, but they are poised for showdown over who controls the state’s vital water supply.”
