Imagine paying more for your utilities bill than your rent every month. Residents of Albany, GA are struggling under the undue burden of rising utility costs, and we need to take action.

Since 2017, 9to5 Georgia has been at the epicenter of organizing in Southwest Georgia on the issues of high light bills. The Albany Coalition to Lower Utility Bills (ACLUB) was founded to identify the reasons for high utility bills and organize local community members around the issue. Since then, 9to5 and ACLUB have integrated utilities justice into key voter engagement work in the region, trained women to demand solutions from their city leaders, and worked with other advocates to bring attention to the utilities crisis, but there is more to be done.

9to5 is releasing People Over Profit: The Campaign for Utilities Justice in Albany to highlight this major issue, offer workable solutions, and, hopefully, spur on change.
