Legislative Day of Action for Water Justice
Legislators need to know that there is a much better way than simply denying thousands of families water they need for drinking, washing and flushing their toilets! Let's inform our Senators and Representatives about a new bi-partisan set of bills that could create a human right to water in Michigan, establish a water affordability plan and other important reforms.

There will be water lobbying training tonight (Monday) from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Food and Water Watch, 2727 Second Ave (at Temple, across from Cass Park)
