Water injustices action group

Water is inaccessible and unaffordable for Detroit residents, who face serious health consequences without clean, reliable water. Moreover, these consequences have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Through the SciPol-Detroit summer initiative, the Water Injustices Action Group surveyed and informed residents in the Detroit metropolitan area about water injustices- specifically within the city of Detroit. We also gained the support of many suburban residents as we aim to increase general knowledge, permanently halt water shutoffs, and increase water affordability.
