Join us Tuesday morning with Senator de León

Thank you for your support on Proposition 68. The Yes on Prop 68 campaign is hosting a victory press conference, headlined by Senator de León on Tuesday. I hope you can join us and a number of Los Angeles leaders at this important event! See below information:

WHAT: Yes on Prop 68 Press Conference
WHEN: Tuesday, June 19th 10 a.m.
WHERE: Vista Hermosa Park – 100 N. Toluca St., Los Angeles, CA 90026
WHO: Senator de León and other Los Angeles Leaders

Senator de León and local leaders will lead a press conference to talk about Prop 68 passing and what it will mean for local investments in Los Angeles County.

Under Prop. 68 the Los Angeles area will receive close to $1 billion, including significant funding for the protection and restoration of the Los Angeles River. The measure also directly addresses the need to bring parks and green spaces to L.A.’s underserved families, ensure all communities have access to clean drinking water and better prepare California to weather the impacts of climate change.

We hope to see you there!

We did it!

Thank you for your support, your volunteering, and your vote. The statewide parks and natural resources bond, Proposition 68, passed! Election results show that it won with about 56% of the vote statewide, and that total may increase as more ballots are counted over the next few days.

Californians have spoken. Prop 68 will invest 4.1 billion dollars in protecting our parks, water, and natural areas. The Los Angeles area will receive over 140 million dollars–a major investment in our parks and natural resources, and be eligible for up to 2 billion dollars in competitive grants. We’ll keep you updated as this process unfolds.

Vote Vote Vote!

Today is Election Day! Polls close at 8pm, please be sure and get out to vote today. Polling shows it’s going to be close, and we NEED your Yes vote! If you’re in line before polls close, you will be allowed to vote. Not sure where to vote? Find your polling place here (LA County) https://lavote.net/locator/ or call the toll-free Voter Hotline for help at (800) 345-8683.

Now’s the time to make your voice heard on the future of California’s water and natural resources. Prop 68 is a chance for Californians to step up and protect what matters to us, like safe parks and clean water. A YES on Prop 68 will invest 4.1 billion dollars in protecting our parks, water, and natural areas to prepare for the impacts of climate change.

Join us on Twitter one more time Monday morning!
