As Trump continues to interfere with plans for negotiations on a future coronavirus stimulus bill and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell refuses to help local governments, hundreds of thousands of people across the country are at risk of water shutoffs because high water rates are making water bills unaffordable. More than 180 local and state protections against water shutoffs have expired, meaning an estimated 177 million people are left without any protection from having their water shut off.
We’re calling on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to issue an immediate nationwide moratorium on water shutoffs to help protect people from COVID-19.
No one should be denied their basic human right to water, especially during a pandemic. Access to water is not just an urgent issue for protecting public health and safety; it's also about economic justice for our most vulnerable residents.
Sign below to tell the CDC to protect uninterupted water service during the pandemic by enacting a nationawide moratorium on water shutoffs.
