When we go to town halls, state agencies and elected officials, we represent thousands of people who live around the Bay and are committed to its restoration and protection. That matters when it comes to creating and enforcing laws that protect clean water. It helps to spur investments in public infrastructure. And it is important to private foundations and public agencies that issue grants in support of protecting the environment. Knowing that you’re with us can make all the difference.
