Water justice is one of the most gripping issues facing Michigan today, and we take the lead from the water warriors who have worked tirelessly for many years to ensure the rights of every Michigander to clean, drinkable water. While our Community Legal Workers work to help Detroiters keep their water on, we have also signed on to a joint letter with ACLU Michigan, Sugar Law Center, and several other law offices demanding that the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHSS) end all water shutoffs in Detroit because they create a catastrophic public health crisis. We are also working with that same team of lawyers and activists to present policy demands to Governor Whitmer, to end shutoffs and make water affordable throughout the State.
