We Power DC is a coalition of community members and organizations fighting for public power in the District. We need public power to ensure we have a clean, affordable, and equitable energy system for every DC resident. Washingtonians continue to suffer from the historic economic crisis brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, as tens of thousands of people have lost their jobs or had their hours drastically reduced. Because of this economic devastation, more than 90,000 DC residents are currently in debt to our highly profitable investor-owned utilities Pepco and Washington Gas. With a vaccine on the horizon, this could be the beginning of the end of the pandemic. That also means that the
DC Council’s emergency ban on shutoffs could expire soon. Working class
Washingtonians, who suffered so much in 2020, need a fresh start. That means forgiveness
of all utility debt; a ban on shutoffs, disconnections, and fees; and
clean energy and good jobs for all.
