Waiakea Water: on a Mission to Save the World

Have you ever imagined what it would be like to not be able to easily take a warm shower or get a drink or water? Sadly, that is a major struggle people in many parts of the world face; more than 650 billion people, worldwide, do not have access to clean water and 37% of those people live in Sub-Saharan Africa. As a result of dirty water, every 20 seconds, a child dies. Waiakea water plans to change that. For every liter of Waiakea water purchased, they will donate a week’s worth of clean water to Africa and other places throughout the world.

Waiakea partnered with Pump Aid, in part, because they focused some of their efforts on Malawi. In Malawi, water consumption is a mere 15-20 liters per day; to put that into perspective, the average American uses over 660 liters of water per day. In Malawi, the leading cause of death in children under 5 and the second leading cause of death in adults is the lack of clean water and poor sanitation.

Pump Aid has installed more than 4,230 water pumps, helping more than 480,000 people, in Malawi alone. Overall, throughout the world, Pump Aid has installed enough pumps to help more than 1.35 million people have clean water and basic sanitation. Together, Waiakea and Pump Aid want to expand their efforts through Sub-Saharan Africa.

Waiakea’s water is filtered through roughly 14,000 feet of porous volcanic rock. This filtration process gives their water a unique blend of life-sustaining minerals. Waiakea’s water is found more than 2,400 miles from the nearest industrial land mass and is surrounded by 10 million square miles of ocean. The water comes from snowmelt and rain from Mauna-Loa, an active volcano and one of the purest environments on the face of the Earth.

Waiakea holds the resources the land has to offer in high regard. Therefore, they hold their sustainability efforts in utmost importance. One thing the company does is use 100% recycled polyethylene terephthalate (RPET) to make their water bottles. RPET is post-consumer recycled plastic and has environmental advantages that, when compared to virgin plastic bottles, include: using 85% less energy to manufacture, reduces carbon emissions by more than 90%, and uses 90% less water.

Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund: Advocating for Civil, Migrant, and Human Rights

On October 18, 2007, Jim and Michael were arrested by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

The two are the Phoenix New Times and Village Voice Media co-founders. Sheriff Arpaio arrested them in the middle of the night and detained for bringing to light the existence of grand jury proceedings seeking reporters’ notes on articles covering the sheriff.

Additionally, subpoenas were demanding the identity of citizens who read stories about the sheriff on New Times. The two journalists sued the county and won their case at the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

They were awarded a $3.75 million settlement which they have set aside to fund migrants’ rights organizations in Arizona through their fund, the Lacey, and Larkin Frontera Fund.

Justice for Immigrants & Families Project (JIF)

One of the organizations funded by the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund is the Justice for Immigrants & Families Project (JIF). This organization is a project of the Phoenix Legal Action Network which is made up of pro bono attorneys who offer their services to protect the rights of immigrants, racial minorities, women, the LGBTQ+ community, and religious minorities.

They do so by advocating for freedom of speech, criminal justice reform, police accountability and voting rights. Learn more about Jim Larkin: http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/5-smart-ways-people-and-places-are-resisting-trumps-immigration-policies/

JIF is committed to providing immigrants with legal services because the presence of a lawyer more often than not results in a dispositive outcome in immigration cases. This is pegged on the fact that the chances of a non-detained immigrant winning relief from deportation go up by five times if he/she has access to attorney services.

Before its formation, there was no organization offering free legal services to non-detained immigrants in Maricopa County, Arizona. The formation of JIF is timely given the heightened implementation of the latest Executive Orders on immigration by the Trump administration.

Services Offered by JIF

Given that Arizona hosts up to 325,000 undocumented individuals, JIF provides and promotes access to justice for immigrants in Maricopa County. The aim and goal of the organization are ensuring that the immigration status of an individual is not a hindrance to their access to social and economic opportunities. The organization does this by offering various services. Read more: Phoenix New Time and Village Voice Media | Wikipedia

It represents immigrants in removal proceedings by referring their cases to pro bono lawyers and also conducts group workshops and “know your rights” orientation sessions for these individuals.

Additionally, JIF provides immigrants with legal consultations and gives them access to self-help legal guides.
