Outreach

On Wednesday, September 13, 2017 OPC’s Community Outreach Specialist Denise E. Blackson was invited to Plummer Elementary School “Back to School Night” located at 4601 Texas Ave. SE in Washington DC. To share information with parents and students on the many service offerings the Office of the People’s Counsel provides utility consumers.

Ms. Blackson informed the many parents and guardians who stopped at the OPC table of the Office’s role as the utility lawyer for consumers of natural gas, electricity and local telephone service, and how the Office assists with consumer complaints and represents the interests of consumers before the Public Service Commission. Ms. Blackson also shared the latest brochures OPC has developed for consumers on third party utility service providers. To learn more about the Office of the People’s Counsel or to have an OPC speaker attend your event, please contact: Denise E. Blackson Community Outreach Specialist at (202) 727-3071.
