ACLE marks the 5th Anniversary of the 2014 Toledo Water Crisis

It's been five years since we lost our access to clean, safe water yet things are getting worse for Lake Erie!


ACLE members commemorate the Anniversary with a visual display of the abuse Lake Erie endures.

This is What Democracy Looks Like

On May 17, federal district Judge Zouhary held a phone conference call with all the parties involved with a suit against the Lake Erie Bill of Rights EXCEPT the organization that gathered 10,000 signatures to put it on the ballot, fought every effort by the board of elections and building trades to keep it off the ballot and won the election despite $320,000 in negative campaigning paid for by BP Oil corporation. 

so members of Advocates for a Clean Lake Erie and Toledoans for Safe Water showed up to let him know we weren't going to be quietly shut out.

Don't forget to check in with ACLE's facebook page:


This is our lake, an international disgrace that's visible from outer space!  It's time to do something about it.
