MUUSJN has been working with the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC) and the Michigan Welfare Rights Organization on a water as a human right campaign to restore water to low-income Detroit families and to establish a just system to provide affordable water. On July 24th, MUUSJN joined the UUSC in delivering to the Mayor (through the Detroit City Council), the Emergency Manager and the Director of the DWSD over 6,000 signatures on a UU petition calling for a moratorium of shutoffs and the adoption of a water affordability plan. With pressure from many organizations, the Emergency Manager turned over management of the DWSD to Mayor Mike Duggan who extended a moratorium on shutoffs and presented a less than ideal "10 Point Plan" for paying water bills that doesn't assure the peoples' right to affordable water. We will continue work for justice.
