Issues

Communities United For Action's People and Planet First Campaign organizes low-income residents and people of color to address the racism and classism that have led to environmental genocide. We will hold the Metropolitan Sewer District accountable for resolving combined sewer overflows in a way that is good for the earth, reduces our bills, and creates sustainable jobs. Access to water, affordable utilities and fair housing are human rights.

    Media Statement: Commissioners Must Not Delay Assistance Programs

    MEDIA STATEMENT

    DATE:  April 23, 2018

    Statement of Wanda Ball, on behalf of Communities United For Action (CUFA)

     

    Cincinnati, Ohio - In response to the Hamilton County Commissioners passage of the proposed senior Customer Assistance Program for sewer bills Tuesday, Communities United For Action member Wanda Ball said:

     

    “Communities United For Action and the public provided recommendations for improving the senior Customer Assistance Program at the February 19, 2019 public hearing. Two months later, they finally passed a program making only one improvement- raising the discount from 20% to 25%. Commissioners vowed to expand the program, and it is our hope that expanded programs won’t be delayed like this one. People need help with sewer bills now.”
