Members of the 2MW Brain Bank

The idea behind The Brain Bank is simple: gather a savvy group of individuals passionate about living a better story and ending water poverty, put them in the same room together, and see what happens. The Bank, which is our acting Board of Directors, isn't just for show - it's comprised of the individuals below who are willing to be in the trenches with us, who get our mission and can’t help but shout it from the rooftops wherever they go. Interested in sitting in on the next meeting of the Bank and seeing more what we're about? Email us at info@secondmilewater.org.
