Canvass for a Public Utility to Replace RG&E!

Join us to talk with Rochester residents about Rochester for Energy Democracy (RED)! Canvassing is a great way to meet our volunteers leading the campaign, learn about the campaign, and practice talking about the campaign with other residents to spread awareness and grow our movement. 

RED is our campaign to replace RG&E with a public, local, community controlled utility. To guarantee profits for its shareholders, RG&E has exploited local residents with unreasonably expensive rates, poor customer service, power outages caused by a disastrously maintained grid, inhumane shut offs, outsourcing jobs away from Rochester, and continuing to burn fossil fuels responsible for climate change.

With a public ratepayer cooperative instead, we will have: affordable rates, a rapid green energy transition, more local union jobs with good wages and benefits, and a real say. We all need heat, electricity, and a healthy planet for future generations. A public utility is how we ensure that our utility serves us instead of lining the pockets of distant shareholders!

Our fight for a just utility is stronger with more people involved. Come canvass with us so that we can reach more Rochester residents about this important fight and encourage them to join us! 

Please RSVP below as soon as possible; you must RSVP to attend so that we can have enough materials for everyone. The canvass will take place from 1:00 - 5:00 PM on Sunday, June 25th, at the Metro Justice office. There will be a brief training before participants split into pairs and depart for their turf. We will reconvene at the Metro Justice office or in the neighborhood by 4:45 PM to hand in petitions and debrief.
