We don’t just talk. We do.

Women to the Front strives to creatively fundraise for the hardworking and under-supported organizations that protect, defend and elevate the issues we believe in. We are proud of the work we’ve accomplished so far with other like-minded progressive organizations. But there’s much work still to be done.

Interested in collaborating, have goods you can donate, or run a progressive organization that needs support? Partner with us!

A Fundraiser for “THE HUMAN UTILITY”

PAST September 12, 2019

Water is a Human Right.

In places such as Detroit, Baltimore, and other cities in the United States, families unable to afford their water bills have their water service disconnected.
When this happens, kids can't bathe, people can't wash dishes, and grandparents can't flush their toilets. In extreme situations, people have had their homes taken away and lose custody for their kids over an unpaid water bill.
Besides paying water bills for families in need, THE HUMAN UTILITY’S ultimate goal is policy change. Water is the one utility in Michigan that isn’t regulated. While Detroit’s median income is less than half the national average, the average Detroit water bill is twice the national average. The Human Utility is working with politicians and activists in Michigan to pass legislation that makes water a regulated, affordable utility. Water is a human right.

AND IF YOU CAN’T JOIN US ON SEPT. 12TH, YOU CAN DONATE! OR DO BOTH!

*100% of ALL proceeds go to The Human Utility*
