Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr

Access to water is a basic human right, and voluntarily shutting off that access for thousands of poor residents is inexcusable -- especially when summer temperatures are starting to climb.

While Detroit's poverty rate has been rising, the city has been hiking the cost of water to more than double what it was ten years ago -- making it impossible for people to pay their bills. I urge you to stand with these residents: Keep the water flowing!

How this will help

We didn't fight for clean water just so the 1% could have it -- but Detroit is planning to shut off water to thousands of struggling residents. It's up to you to restore this basic human right!
