Suggested Sample Call or Email:

Supervisor __________________, my name is ________, and I work at ______ , a city funded nonprofit. Nonprofit organizations—and their employees—serve San Francisco’s most vulnerable populations. We’ve have been hit hard by years of flat funding and small wage increases, and skyrocketing costs. San Francisco has the fastest growing economy and the highest income inequality in the country. You can fight inequality by providing some relief to nonprofit workers and the clients they serve. Approve the .75% CODB supplemental and show that you care about all of San Francisco’s residents.
