USFWC signs on to fight for a nationwide shutoff moratorium on household utilities

On Wednesday, 1/13, we delivered our joint letter to President Biden and Vice President Harris asking them to issue an executive order to halt all household utility shutoffs during the pandemic.

The USFWC joined more than 600 organizations from 48 states and DC signed on in support of a nationwide moratorium on utility shutoffs. The 600+ Groups include Free Press Action, Partnership for Southern Equity, Food & Water Watch, Corporate Accountability, The Democracy Collaborative, Black Lives Matter Global Network, SEIU, CWA, Interfaith Power & Light — and local and state organizations from 48 U.S. states and Washington, D.C.
