Victory at Sharp Park Wetlands is near...but your help is needed!
Dear SAVE THE FROGS! Supporter,
Our hard work is paying off. At the request of 1,359 SAVE THE FROGS! supporters who sent letters to the City of San Francisco asking them to save the Sharp Park Wetlands, and 100 people who attended our Save The Frogs Day Rally at the steps of City Hall, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors will vote October 6th on whether to shut down the city's frog-killing Sharp Park Golf Gourse and give management of the Sharp Park Wetlands to the National Park Service. Victory is on the horizon, but we need you to make your voice heard...this will be a close vote!
Please send this letter to San Francisco's politicians!
Please send this letter and urge the City of San Francisco to vote YES on legislation that would shut down the city's frog-killing Sharp Park Golf Course and turn the Sharp Park Wetlands over to the National Park Service. And please join us at City Hall October 6th for the public hearing, at which you will be able to speak for 2 minutes prior to the vote. We need to be extremely visible to the politicians, so we will have free t-shirts for attendees who RSVP.
Please join us at San Francisco' City Hall October 6th!
The Sharp Park vote takes place at City Hall immediately following a public hearing on the matter. We need you there at City Hall wearing a SAVE THE SHARP PARK WETLANDS! shirt that we can provide you free if you RSVP in advance. The more of our supporters attend the hearing, the more pressure San Francisco's politicians will feel to vote in favor of the frogs. You will also be allowed to speak your opinion to the Board of Supervisors, likely for 2 minutes! The time is not yet set, but if you RSVP, we will keep you posted as details emerge. Clear your calendar! SAVE THE FROGS!
Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to attend.
