Outreach Day for a Public Utility!

Did you know that we can vote out the foreign-owned, for-profit corporation that owns and controls RG&E? RG&E and their foreign owners continue to overcharge and fail our community without accountability. The solution is a tried and true one: a non-profit, locally owned, public utility. 

The time has come for Monroe County to do the right thing about the RG&E crisis: commission and fund a study on replacing RG&E with a local public utility! Initiating an implementation study at the county level is our crucial first step toward achieving a public utility that works for local residents instead of distant shareholders. The people of Monroe County have already waited too long for a public solution to the corporate greed and persistent incompetence of RG&E. The City of Rochester already did its part last June by contributing funding for a county-wide study. Now it's Monroe County's turn to step up.

Volunteers with Metro Justice's Rochester for Energy Democracy Campaign are determined to organize the public support we need to win a study from the County Legislature this spring. It's especially important that we win the vote of three Democratic legislators that have not yet supported doing a study. Together, these legislators represent Henrietta, Pittsford, Fairport, and East Rochester. Join us for an outreach day in these districts! It's in our hands to make a difference.

The outreach day is on Sunday, February 11, from 10 AM - 4 PM, starting at the Metro Justice Office. We'll kick off with a comprehensive training on how to have compelling, in-depth conversations with people to move them towards action. Then, we'll go knock on doors in pairs to speak with residents! Bagels, snacks, coffee, and tea will be provided! While we will review this more thoroughly during the training, we encourage you to review this guideline for the door-to-door conversation and this FAQ in advance. 

Accessibility note: The office is up a flight of stairs. If this presents a barrier to you, please contact [email protected] so we can find an alternate location.
