Detroit Water Brigade Plans Water Distribution

What a 2nd week it’s been! Thousands of you have visited the site, registered to volunteer, donated to us and come out to canvass the neighborhoods to learn more about people’s needs. We are so amazed! But this is just the beginning. This weekend and next week, we will open up even more resource hubs and begin distributing water and vital information to Detroiters facing imminent shutoff or already living with it. We need hundreds more volunteers, and we’re working to find living places around the city – community centers, churches, hostels, residences – where out-of-town volunteers can stay. Let us know if you have any ideas! We’re also excited to see that after weeks of silence the national media is finally beginning to cover this humanitarian crisis. The United Nations is taking note and the whole world is watching what is happening here and how Detroiters and their allies are responding to this human rights violation. Our own spokesman Demeeko Williams spoke to RT America yesterday, and look for him on Fox 2 Detroit’s Let it Rip Weekend this Sunday at 9am facing off with the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department itself. We have to keep spreading the word!
