URGENT ACTION: ASK Mayor Pete Buttigieg TO VETO 05-18
Last night the South Bend Common Council voted in favor (5-4) of Women's Care Center rezoning with certain written restrictions. Council members David Varner, Jo Broden, Oliver Davis, John Voorde, and Gavin Ferlic all voted in favor of rezoning, while Regina Williams-Preston, Tim Scott, Sharon McBride, and Karen White voted to reject. Many council members still maintain that those restrictions will not apply to the public right-of-way, and, therefore, there will be no ability of Women's Care Center to stop protesters even if they wanted to do so. Rezoning that property will essentially lead to a conflict zone. For more information, please read our summary here: http://bit.ly/Oppose0518
1) The next step that we can take is urgent. We must reach Mayor Pete and urge him to veto bill 05-18, which he may very well sign this morning.

2) The second step you can take is to email all the council members that voted in favor and tell them why you disagree with their decision. They need to feel the heat on this!

3) Please thank the council members that voted against rezoning! In particular, Regina Williams-Preston gave a very powerful speech.
