The United Nations categorizes water as a human right and for many Baltimoreans, water rates exceed the maximum 3% of their income the UN has said that people should pay for water.

Since 2000, water rates have more than tripled in Baltimore City and more than one-third of residents cannot afford their water bills. When our neighbors can’t afford to pay, the City shuts off their water, renters are evicted, and homeowners lose their homes through tax sales. With the lack of substantial assistance from the Department of Public Works, it’s time for radical change to come from City Hall. Access to safe, affordable water is a fundamental human right, one that our City must affirm for all Baltimoreans.

Join us at Red Emma's on Wednesday, August 9 from 7:30 – 9:30 p.m. to hear from an expert panel about how we got into this mess, the proposed solutions, and what YOU can do to ensure that everyone in our city has access to water. Grab your friends and join us!

Panelists will include:
-Delegate Mary Washington, 43rd District
-Eddie Conway, Producer at the Real News Network
-Komal Vaidya, Clinical Teaching Fellow with the Community Development Clinic at the University of Baltimore
