Ask Your Council Member to Protect Children Before Election Day

In 2014, kindergarteners from PS 290 asked their Councilmember to introduce a bill to ban toxic pesticides. In 2015, INTRO 0800 was introduced. In 2017, the children, area residents, and environmental activists testified at a hearing of the City Council Committee on Health.

Now, let’s help the children fulfill their dream – please!

Talking Points for phone calls to Council Members who have not co-sponsored INTRO 0800
:

Hello. My name is ________________. I’m calling about INTRO 0800, a bill that would ban the use of toxic pesticides in New York City parks and public spaces.
I would like Council member _____________ to co-sponsor INTRO 0800 because:

Pesticides like Roundup have glyphosate which is so dangerous for children, adults, and animals.
Pesticides can get into the water supply.
Add any other points you want to make.

Do you think that Council member __________________ will co-sponsor INTRO 0800?
Thank you very much. (If they are not sure yet, ask them to call you back, or you can agree to call them back.)


If a Council member says, yes, they will co-sponsor INTRO 0800, please let us know at www.intro0800.com.
