On July 1, water rates in Baltimore will increase by 9.5%, and 52% of Baltimoreans will pay more than they can afford for this basic human right. These rates are unacceptable, and we won't allow our friends and neighbors to pay even more for what they need to live. Join us at a coalition press conference as we demand that our city provides safe, affordable water for all Baltimoreans. Wear your JUFJ buttons/swag! We'll be handing out the signs that we prepared at our last community convening.
