Our water is our future.
Clean water is a basic human right, and access to clean water ensures our city–including every child and family in every neighborhood–will thrive for generations.
We Are #OneJXN
We believe our city has the talent and will to produce ideas and solutions that ensure every person thrives. When we work together as One JXN, we can solve the tough problems, take advantage of new opportunities, and create new possibilities in every neighborhood across our city.
We believe water is foundational to our future, so our current focus is helping our neighbors navigate and understand our city’s challenged water system.
One JXN aims to provide accurate and reliable information about what is happening with the Jackson water system, where Jackson residents can access clean water, and the long-term implications of current and future work on the water system.
We are here to support and sustain a shared vision by connecting people with possibilities that contribute to immediate and ongoing solutions. By elevating community voices, we can directly combat the barriers that prevent Jackson’s water system from being equitable and effective for every resident.
