This page highlights the work of organizations that the Agua Fund supports.

Virginia Organizing

Virginia Organizing  brings people together to create a more just Virginia.  We work where real change begins in local communities.  We listen to what community members care about, we equip them with tools they need to take action, and we connect them with like-minded folks across the state.  Our approach cuts across the barriers of race, class, gender, sexual orientation, age, ability and geography.
