#PitchIn4Parks Twitter Storm, Friday, May 20 10am-1pm

May 8, 2016

Join us as we hold an online Twitter storm on Friday, May 20 from 10 am - 1pm, telling City Hall that our parks need increased funding. City Hall will hold their Executive Budget hearing at the same time, but even though the public can't testify that doesn't mean we can't make our voices heard! Use hashtag #PitchIn4Parks on Twitter, and tell City Hall why your parks, gardens, and open spaces need more investment. Use the sample tweets provided below, and retweet @NY4P with #PitchIn4Parks. With a strong, unified voice we can ensure better parks for NYC!
