Subject: Help Los Angeles City Council Pass The Anti-War Resolution!
On Tuesday the L.A. City Council fell one vote short of passing Garcetti's Anti-War Resolution. On Friday it comes up for reconsideration. We have a historic opportunity to make L.A, the largest city so far to pass such a resolution. But we need you help:
Please phone, email or fax your city council member as well as the crucial swing votes listed below and the city council president. Have a positive attitude in your communication and ask their help in making L.A. the 100th city to pass such a resolution. In emails its best to use a subject line that get straight to the point like:
"Please support Garcetti's Anti-War Resolution"
"Support the Anti-War Resolution"
as that may be all that is read. It's the numbers that have the effect.
