In the middle of a pandemic, utility companies are shutting off people's water, power, and internet, and our elected leaders are letting it happen. Across the country, state governments and public utilities commissions have taken action to end shutoffs so that no one will be without such basic necessities, but in Ohio our leaders are continuing to let utilities like FirstEnergy dictate our statewide policies at the expense of thousands of Ohio residents.
Join us on Saturday, Sep. 26 at 11 a.m. in Columbus to call for an end to utility corruption and greed, and to fight for the recognition of water, power, and internet as necessities that we can not go without during this pandemic (or ever). We'll begin gathering in the parking lot of the First Congregational Church at 444 E. Broad St, Columbus, OH 43215. The parking lot is off E. Broad St, next to the Washington Gladden Social Justice Park. Let us know if you'll be there at ohiocitizen.org/noshutoffsrally. See our route and sign up below!
