Last month, the City of Detroit announced plans to shut off water to more than 17,000 residents resuming a condemned practice of denying water and sanitation service to low income households. 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.

Please attend the PWB monthly meeting and help out. Thousands of families in Detroit are at risk of having their water shut off in the next few months. We must come together and organize.
