No Ameren Shutoffs, a volunteer-led grassroots campaign, won our second consecutive win against Ameren Illinois, a multi-billion dollar corporation!
Your help made the second extension of the utility shut-off moratorium possible, but the fight is not over yet!
Ameren Illinois already demonstrated their disregard for renters’ well-being by repeatedly threatening our access to essential utility services during the pandemic. But now they plan to even more strongly assert their commitment to profit over lives by cutting off struggling households’ access to water and electricity in the midst of COVID-19 and an economic crisis. Ameren Illinois’ next round of shutoff notices have disconnect dates of September 11th.
As the shut-off date approaches, Governor JB Pritzker has the power to stop this from happening via executive order. We need your help to make this happen!
We need people to tell Governor Pritzker to extend the moratorium. Let’s show him that working people and renters are watching, and he can’t stand by while we are put at risk! Call on Governor JB Pritzker to use an executive order to extend the utility shutoffs moratorium & reinstate previously disconnected services by clicking the twitter link below, or calling his office at 217-782-0244.
We’ve already shown what we can win when we apply pressure to our representatives. We need to keep up the momentum to protect ourselves and our neighbors!
