Ending Water Shutoffs
Published Mar 9, 2021
If everyone can't wash their hands frequently, then we can't stop coronavirus. Period.
Too many people across the country can’t wash their hands because their water service is turned off. This endangers all of us, especially when the most widely endorsed strategy to prevent or manage the coronavirus (COVID-19) is to wash our hands frequently.
Water must be turned on for everyone, right now, for the safety of the entire country. That’s why we’ve been pushing both Congress in their stimulus package and governors at the state level — demanding that they stop all water shutoffs and enact long-term solutions that will ensure our water systems are funded.
This emergency has proven one thing: Withholding water costs lives and it’s time our representatives stepped up to protect us.
Tell President Biden the water needs to stay on for everyone in our country!
