Tell Detroit to turn on the water!

To be delivered to James Fausone, chairman of the Detroit Board of Water Commissioners

Petition Statement

We demand that the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department stop violating basic human rights and return clean water to Detroit citizens.
There are currently 3,110 signatures. NEW goal - We need 4,000 signatures!

Petition Background

3,600 residents in Detroit are already without water. Why? Because they have bills of $150 or more, or are 60 days past due on bills in a city that is bankrupt. Soon, half of the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department's 323,900 local residents will be out of water. It is unacceptable to withhold our citizens' basic needs like clean running water.

We need to call attention to this unacceptable violation of human rights, and quickly -- before more homes run dry.

Sign our petition to demand that the Detroit Water and Sewage Department restore running water to the residents of Detroit.
