The Michigan Sierra Club is convening a Detroit-based coalition to form a People’s Water Board. The People’s Water Board Mission is:
Water is life. The People’s Water Board advocates for access, protection, and conservation of water. We believe water is a human right and all people should have access to clean and affordable water. Water is a commons that should be held in the public trust free of privatization. The People’s Water Board promotes awareness of the interconnectedness of all people and resources.
Join Michigan Welfare Rights Organization and many other grassroots groups as we fight against water shutoffs and protect the human right to water!
People’s Water Board – Planning Meeting:
Saturday, April 18 from 10am to 1:30pm (refreshments provided) at Metropolitan Center for Technology Room 101A (2727 Second Avenue; Detroit). Free and secure parking is available behind the building; enter through the back door.
As we continue to see water rates increase, water shutoffs in homes, and pollution impacting our drinking water, we believe it is time for us to collectively organize for change and we need your help! Questions? please call 313-965-0055.
