Freedom Friday: Stop the Detroit Water Shutoffs!

Friday, July 6

4 PM to 6 PM

Spirit of Detroit
1 Woodward Ave, Detroit, Michigan 48226

The City of Detroit is shutting off water to thousands of residents resuming a condemned practice of denying water and sanitation service to low income households. Since mid-May, 1,940 households have had their water service terminated!  Meanwhile, Detroit and surrounding cities are in the middle of an alarming Hepatitis A epidemic! This public health crisis has led to national travel warnings not to go to Michigan.

People’s Water Board, Moratorium NOW, and the Michigan Poor People’s Campaign are organizing weekly Friday protests until the Mayor calls a moratorium on the shut offs. Please take a moment to click on the invite button on this event, invite your Facebook friends, and share.

We will be meeting at the Spirit Of Detroit and marching a short distance to Campus Martius.

Please join us in demanding:

No more water shutoffs!

Implementation of an affordable water plan!
