      > Well, the time has come for all of our supporters to show up & speak out at the TUESDAY, JANUARY 22 SANTA MONICA CITY COUNCIL MEETING, and also send supportive e-mail & phone messages to the Council members to get their FULL SUPPORT to save and restore Paul Conrad's iconic landmarked peace sculpture, that has been standing in the Santa Monica Civic Center since 1991. The fate of "Chain Reaction" is with us! As the old activist slogan says: "If the people lead, the leaders will follow".

      > E-mail to: council@... Call: 310-458-8201 (ONE e-mail and call reaches all 7 Council members)
      >
      > The meeting begins 6:30PM at Santa Monica City Hall located at 1685 Main Street, Santa Monica 90401
      >
      > Free validated parking at the City parking structure next to City Hall.
      >
      > We are appealing to the Council members (we need 4 out of 7 supportive votes) for MORE TIME & MORE CITY SUPPORT to secure funding to honorably restore what is a most timely, creative and important peace monument. In fact, 3-time Pulitzer Prize winning political cartoonist Paul Conrad gifted the creative 26-foot-tall nuclear mushroom cloud sculpture, that he designed and created, to Santa Monica through a $250,000 philanthropic peace donation. So, shouldn't the City of Santa Monica want to take good care of this gift and make a positive commitment to achieving a high quality restoration?

      > SANTA MONICA SUPPORTS ART, LANDMARKS, & PEACE. "Chain Reaction" exemplifies all three!
      >
      > SO, SANTA MONICA SHOULD SUPPORT THE CONRAD FAMILY & COMMUNITY, AND JOIN WITH THEM IN A COLLABORATIVE AND UNIFIED RESTORATION EFFORT.
      >
      > One final request: PLEASE take some time on this Martin Luther King holiday weekend to network this to others via any and all social media or other "spreading the word" method you can. WE ARE APPEALING TO OUR SUPPORTERS, which include many former Santa Monica Mayors, artists, activists, students, community and religious leaders, and other concerned Santa Monica residents and visitors.
