Take Back Our Parks

This week I received a formal endorsement from Take Back Our Parks.  Take Back Our Parks is a coalition of groups and individuals committed to keeping our parks open and accessible to all.  TBOP is opposed to privatization and profiteering in the parks.  They also advocate for retaining the naturalistic character of our parks (are opposed to toxic Field Turf installations), and for reform of our Rec and Park department to include more public input into decisions to be made about our public spaces.  I applaud the efforts of Take Back Our Parks.  Their endorsement is very meaningful to me.  They are a grassroots community-based organization which is worthy of our respect and commendation.

This endorsement came on very nice letterhead.  I put it up on the old Norge fridge (yes, it still works; icebox, check; needs to be defrosted) in my kitchen.
