On June 25, we will gather at the corner of Fifth & Vine, Fountain Square, to make our demand clear: Governor DeWine, Stop Utility Shutoffs. We have a special surprise for the action, so don't miss this!
Communities United For Action is asking Gov. DeWine to end utility shut-offs until the COVID pandemic is over and people can access assistance to catch up on utilities. He issued moratoriums in the beginning of the pandemic, but quietly let them expire. Many utilities across Ohio - including Duke Energy - resumed shutoffs in winter 2020. Duke Energy has shutoff 21,534 households from October 2020 through March of 2021 in its Ohio service area for an average of 3,589 homes per month.
RSVP below, and call us if you want to volunteer for a role at the action or if you have a story to share about utility shutoffs.
