How to be an advocate

As a nonprofit, Circulate San Diego relies on the support of our many members and donors. End-of-year giving is a major portion of our fundraising, and we have been asking everyone to lend their support.

Below is an email we sent earlier this week. It describes our model for advocacy, and it invites readers to join us as an Individual Member
