>>>>> About the Webinar...

NLMH members & organizers will share insights into their organizing model, policy proposals, and we'll engage in a discussion about their organizing for an end to price-gouging by utility companies, financial assistance for low-income residents and community-control over utilities.

Utilities justice is a key element of housing security and urban justice and a crucial part of strengthening and expanding the environmental justice and energy democracy movements.

In 2013 the price of utilities had gone up more than 50% since 2000, and 1 in 5 poor renting families nationally missed payments and got shut off notices AND In 2014 there was nearly a $45 billion gap between low-income families’ actual energy utility bills and bills that would have been affordable (6% of gross household income).
