Water Affordability Funk (fun + work) Day!

Date: 
Wed, Nov 16, 2016 - 10:00am to 1:30pm

City:

Water is not affordable to nearly half of Detroit residents, causing mass water shut offs. The city's water assistance plan does not work either, this is why we need an income-based Water Affordability Plan. We have been petitioning and canvassing at water payment centers in District 3 and District 7.

We are so thankful for everyone's help, now it's time to have some FUN while we work. On Wednesday, November 16 at 10:00 a.m. We'll be providing pizza, movement-music, and crafts for water affordability swag!
