A threat to water anywhere is a threat to water everywhere


"...members of El Salvador’s National Assembly moved one step closer to passing a controversial law that would privatize water in the country.

A majority in the Environmental Committee voted to create a regulatory body that consist of seven entities, three that represent the public, and four that represent private interests. The move would give private interests the majority, and with that, control over how the resource will be managed. Historically, when big business is put in charge of protecting natural resources and the environment, it has not been for the benefit of the environment or for communities that depend on it for their survival." Read more. 

EcoViva has worked for decades with grassroots organizations in El Salvador to promote environmental sustainability, economic security, and social justice. By working with local fishermen and leaders to develop and implement sustainable use plans, EcoViva has helped communities ensure both the preservation of local livelihoods and protect the ecosystems they rely upon. 

FBB is proud to partner with EcoViva. We'll continue to face each new challenge and keep working toward a more sustainable future. 

Give now to be part of the solution! Thank you for being #HumanismAtWork!

FBB is proud to share this post from our partners at the Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project. 

In this Women's History Month, "we at the Florence Project celebrate the strong, resilient women who inspire us every day: our clients who are mothers, daughters, sisters, and survivors.

We celebrate Imelda. 

Imelda grew up in the mountains of El Salvador and faced constant discrimination, violence, and persecution because she is a lesbian. She was bullied and survived physical violence and beatings from multiple men. She fled to the U.S. to seek safety."

Read Imelda's story.

FBB is honored to partner with Florence Immigrant and Refugee Rights Project. Contribute now to our Humanist Grants program to help us continue working with FIRR and organizations like them.

Read this recent blog from our beneficiary partner, EcoViva, about how politics can affect the work we do. Many factors beyond our control affect service work, but we adapt. We continue to work for the communities in which we are invested. And, #HumanismAtWork is a powerful thing.
