Stop Water Shutoffs

A Consumer Reports investigation found that before the pandemic, Detroit residents could get their water shut off for falling $150 behind. But large profitable corporations like Coke and Pepsi who bottle the same Detroit tap water were allowed to keep filling their bottles and coffers even as the city showed they had tens of thousands of dollars in uncollected bills.

This inequity reinforces why we need a nationwide moratorium on water shutoffs that pose a huge public health risk. Send a message to your governor and Congress now.

As we struggle with the economic fallout of a global pandemic, I’m asking you to consider an immediate moratorium on water shutoffs. Without access to clean water at home, American families would be put at increased health risks. The public spread of diseases like hepatitis A and the flu could increase.

Please take action now to protect American families and our public health. Enact a nationwide moratorium on these dangerous water shutoffs.
