Who We Are
We’re a diverse community of talented change-makers who believe that every American should have clean, running water for life.

George has a simple goal: to change the way people think about water. He built DIGDEEP to defend access to clean water as a basic human right.
Director for People and Places
Tawny is a first generation American with a love for storytelling and development. She also has a killer laugh, which is why she’s in charge of DIGDEEP’s partnerships and events.
American Projects Director
Emma is a Navajo artist and activist. Growing up, her grandparents didn’t have running water or electricity. She’s a native warrior princess with a dog/sidekick named Cindy Sherman and she runs our projects in the US.
Cindy $herman is from Buenos Aires, Argentina. She loves traveling, especially flying and exploring airports. She spends most of her time in LA and on the Rez/Navajo Nation. Cindy loves laying in the sun, hiking, eating chicken and red bell peppers, and cuddling. She’s an advocate for water access– she loves getting other dogs and humans alike safe drinking water. Cindy is named after one of her mom’s favorite artists.
Katie has a BA in Political Science from UC Santa Barbara. As a lifelong California resident, she’s passionate about water policy and drought preparedness. She plans on getting a Master’s in Public Policy so she can continue to work for a more sustainable future. In her free time, she drinks too much coffee, waits for bread dough to rise, and bothers her cat.

American Projects Fellow
Lisa is from Cameron, Arizona, Navajo Nation. She grew up without electricity. She plays & composes music and builds furniture. She is a strong advocate for environmental awareness, especially on Indigenous lands. Her goal in life is to represent and give back to her family, community, and land. The reason she does everything that she does is because of the strong women in her life: her mom and bimasaní.
