Our goal is to fill the seats and the halls with the voices of people and friends of the San Francisco Bay-Delta estuary. Restore the Delta is giving you an advance notice so that you can make arrangements for work. We need as many people as possible to make a powerful statement with our Californian legislators. This may be one of our last public opportunities at the Capitol to oppose the project.
