Sep 29, 2015 — Friends,
Our campaign for Open Streets in Philly is less than a day old, and already 1,000 people have signed our petition for three chilled-out family-friendly weekends of car-free Center City streets next summer. Our Facebook page has over 2,500 supporters.
The media has already taken notice of this crazy momentum. Already there are articles in Metro (http://bit.ly/1h7TzqX) and Philly Mag (http://bit.ly/1YMzRmG) cheering us on, and more are on the way.
While the timing is ripe, here's what you can do now to take this to the next level:
1. Share this petition with your Facebook and Twitter friends. Bonus points for personalizing the message. Tell them how awesome life was on #pOpenStreets weekend.
2. Sign up for our mailing list. We'll be getting in touch soon with campaign updates and volunteer opportunities. http://bit.ly/1Gf2Q77
3. Share the Metro and Philly Mag articles above with your Facebook and Twitter friends. The articles contain all our campaign info too, so this is another way of helping build interest.
Thanks for all your help so far! If Open Streets happens next summer, it will all be because of your actions this week. Let's do this!
