A NETWORK OF ACTIVISTS
Members of the Friends are passionate and knowledgeable about parks. Many are civically active, especially in urban park policy and greenspace issues. We have mobilized this group of supporters through communications outreach and education. As we align and strengthen our network, the Friends intends to become an even more powerful advocate for the three parks and the needs of urban greenspace. We can rally our network to take action about future issues as they arise, and we see unlimited potential in the powerful voices of our membership.
As advocates for the parks, we successfully reach out to elected officials on the local, state and federal level to build support for our efforts and educate them on both the challenges faced by the parks as well as our successful projects and achievements. Our productive relationships with elected officials enables us to draw broader community support, create a collaborative environment, and open doors to new constituencies.
