#NN14: Turn on the Water! Tax Wall Street! March & Rally

One of the most pressing issues locals in Detroit are currently facing is water shutoffs. In lieu of a lunch keynote on Friday, July 18th, we are urging all Netroots Nation 2014 attendees to support local organizing efforts and join the rally asserting that access to water is a basic human right.

If you’d like to read more about Detroit’s water crisis, please read this excellent piece by John Nichols, Against Austerity in Detroit: ‘Water is a Human Right’, on The Nation.


Join National Nurses United as they declare a public health emergency and demand a moratorium be put on the unprecedented water shutoffs in the Motor City.
