March for Water, World Water Day 2009, in downtown Los Angeles. March 22, 2009. A community march highlighting the local state water crisis that has resulted from a dysfunctional management, and to raise awareness of the plight of the people that are suffering from a global mismanagement of water. Starting at Los Angeles Historic Park, the length of the march is approximately 3 miles, the distance that on average people in other places of the world have to walk to find water to sustain their lives, many marchers will be carrying water vessels on their heads throughout the march in an act of solidarity with others around the world. Community-Based Organizations & Environmental Justice Groups will be marching as well as students of all ages (including 3 elementary schools) from all over the city will have banners representing their schools and their love for water.
