Across Metro Detroit, thousands of residents continue to live without access to affordable, clean water and some will even face water shutoffs over the holidays. This also means families with steam radiators are not able to heat their homes.
In this season of giving and celebration, please participate in these efforts to secure a moratorium on water shutoffs and the human right to water.
Stop the Water Shutoffs!
Contact the Mayor’s office all month long to demand the City place a moratorium on water shutoffs during the holiday and winter season. Call: 313-224-3400 Email: EmailMayorDuggan@DetroitMI.gov Tweet: @MayorMikeDuggan
