We demand that the Senate act quickly to ensure the human right to water by passing a national moratorium on water shutoffs, with service restoration for all, as part of the next coronavirus relief package, and to support the WATER Act (S.611) to ensure safe water for all. We cannot leave any community behind and without water.
The most widely endorsed strategy to prevent coronavirus is to wash our hands frequently. But for millions of people in our country, this task is more difficult than you can imagine — because their water has been shut off.
We all deserve access to clean water in order to take the necessary measures to keep ourselves and our communities safe.
Urge your senators include a nationwide moratorium on water shutoffs in the next COVID relief bill, and to support the WATER Act.
