Vote YES on Measure AA!


Golden Gate Audubon Society urges you to vote YES on Measure AA, a $12-per-year parcel tax that will raise $500 million to restore wetlands around San Francisco Bay.

As Audubon members, we know how important healthy wetlands are for shorebirds and waterbirds, including endangered species like the Ridgeway’s Rail. But restored wetlands also benefit people — by providing environmentally-friendly flood control (more important than ever due to climate change and sea level rise) and opportunities for outdoor recreation.

This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to leave a healthier Bay for our children and grandchildren. How you can help:

(1) Vote YES on AA. It’s at the bottom of your June primary ballot — don’t overlook it!

(2) Tell your friends and family about Measure AA. Many people have not even heard about this ballot measure. You can also post about it on Facebook, Twitter, or other social media!

(3) Take part in phone banking – making calls to potential swing voters about Measure AA. 

There are phone bank sessions on many weeknights (5 to 8:30 p.m.) before the June 7 election in both Berkeley and San Francisco. Training and snacks provided! Click here for dates and details on phone banking in Berkeley. Click here for info on San Francisco. RSVP requested.

Learn more about why we support Measure AA in the spring issue of our Gull newsletter.
