The Advocacy Committee advocates to reduce stormwater runoff and erosion, remove invasive plant species, improve water quality, preserve and expand natural habitats, and reduce plastic and trash that ends up in our waterways.
The Committee tailors its advocacy approach depending on the nature of the issue. For example, both the Purple Line and Beltway expansion cut or will cut across our watershed. But the way we’ve engaged decision-makers on these issues has been different – read more below.
Join FOSC’s Advocacy for responsible Creek and Community policies
Please join us in writing, calling and testifying on important issues for the health of the Creek and of watershed residents. The Current Issues page has more information on the issues on which FOSC currently advocates. Larger issues are explored on pages devoted to those topics: Synthetic turf, Beltway expansion, and the Purple Line. The Letters and Testimony page has sample letters and testimony you may use to advocate individually on these issues.
If you are interested in advocating for the creek with FOSC, please contact Advocacy Committee chairperson Kit Gage at advocacy at fosc.org.
