Action Alert: Presidential Debates
Dear Friends of the America's WETLAND Campaign,
TIME magazine has not only endorsed the Women of the Storm's proposal for a Presidential debate in New Orleans -- it has provided a way for you to do the same. In an essay in the Sept. 24 issue, editor Rick Stengel supports New Orleans as a host of a Presidential debate, sent by the Women of the Storm, Dillard, Loyola, Tulane and Xavier universities, to the Commission on Presidential Debates.
Today, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to endorse the Women of the Storm's application for a debate and forward to friends, family and organizations across America, asking them to do the same! TIME has promised to gather all the emails and will send them to the Commission on Presidential Debates.
A presidential debate in New Orleans has been endorsed by The New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today, Time Magazine, the New Orleans Times Picayune, the Association of Junior Leagues International, The Links, Inc., the National Council of Jewish Women, the Women's Leadership Initiative of United Way, Friends of New Orleans and America's WETLAND.
We appreciate your forwarding this message to as many email contacts as possible and thank you for your support on behalf of New Orleans. The site selection will be announced next month.
The America's WETLAND Foundation manages the largest, most comprehensive public education campaign in Louisiana's history, raising public awareness of the impact of Louisiana's wetland loss on the state, nation and world. The America's Energy Coast initiative works to sustain the environmental and economic assets of the Gulf Coast region. The initiative is supported by a growing coalition of world, national and state conservation and environmental organizations and has drawn private support from businesses that see wetlands protection as a key to economic growth.
