Petition form

Our cause is growing quickly, but we must present evidence of that to show local officials how many people are opposed to the West Street tunnel.

Please help us collect as many signatures as you can. Ask spouses, significant others, coworkers, passing acquaintances. Take it to your church or synagogue, your health club, your office, your dentist. Leave copies in the lobby of your building.  We need thousands of signatures. (If you havenít already done so, please visit our Petition page where you can sign with one click.)
