Help Parks & Recreation Now!!!

Our Voice Needs to be Heard! Please Take Action Now!
You've heard from us a lot lately, but that's because there's critical work left to be done to protect Philadelphia's parks and recreation. Please participate in the 2nd round of letters and calls to City Council. Thank them for supporting the Mayor's proposed budget for FY 2011 and call on them to go back to the table and find the revenue to make that budget a reality! Without their help, a portion of the funding proposed for the Department of Parks and Recreation may be cut in the Mayor's attempt to make ends meet. The Department can't afford anymore cuts! On top of decades of underfunding, parks and recreation have both been cut by almost 28% since January, 2009 - plus a $1 million reduction for tree maintenance and planting. Click here for more information.WHAT WE NEED TO DO RIGHT NOW:
Please take a moment now to click here and send a letter to Council members, even if you've already written to them.
Direct your colleagues, friends, neighbors and families to where they can link in and send a letter.
If you have a bit more time, leave phone messages for members of City Council. Click here to find out who your Council representative is and find their phone number.
If you can get to City Hall, stop by Council offices and leave the same message. Click here for Council contact info.
Send personalized letters to City Council members the old fashioned way. They will read them.
Thank you for all that you do for Philadelphia's parks and recreation,The Philadelphia Parks Alliance
