No, feel that the park is an opportunity to enjoy nature! Not to see people walking around looking down at their phones etc.

"Homeless people in San Francisco are exactly that -- people. Then why are most of them forced to go to the bathroom on the streets?

Terrible news! This is not a drill.

Mayor Ed Lee is considering killing Prop E for trees, passed by the voters last month with 79% support. Please contact him as soon as possible to prevent this disaster -- just copy and paste our draft message below (or use your own words, which is even more powerful).

Email the Mayor at mayoredwinlee@sfgov.org or call at (415) 554-6141
