STIX Joins Aqua Equity Leadership Team

LOS ANGELES, April 07, 2021 — Today, Aqua Equity LLC, an environmentally conscious, premium bottled water company that exists to help close the social equity gap in under resourced communities, announced the official addition of Brandon “STIX” Salaam-Bailey to its leadership team. Stix is a rapper, entrepreneur, activist and founder of ThinkWatts Foundation who has been key to connecting the company with key change agents in Watts. The future of Watts will include Aqua Equity,” said STIX. “I take pride in aligning myself with a company that has proven to scale locally while remaining minority

owned in an industry where there is the least amount of diversity when it comes to executive positions and ownership. I’m excited for what’s to come with our alignment of missions and the creation of new opportunities.”

Stix and the ThinkWatts Foundation have been instrumental in making an impact in the Watts, Inglewood, and South Los Angeles communities. Stix recently released a new album, “Megawatts: Born in the Riots” to pay tribute to the community where he was born.

With plans to launch the second edition of their Entrepreneurship Training Program in May and a community clean up scheduled on Earth Day, Stix and the ThinkWatts Foundation provide the perfect template for inspiration, leadership, and opportunity. The alignment of our missions allows us to bring additional resources and opportunities to LA and beyond, creating inspiration with our water, and unlocking the potential of some of our greatest communities.”
