Helping Our Peninsula's Environment

Please Donate to Help Protect Our Peninsula's

Environment and Democracy


Helping Our Peninsula's Environment (HOPE) has a tremendous track record of successfully protecting our Peninsula.

HOPE has been called "the group that stopped both 'Dirty Harry' and 'The Terminator,'" and "American's most successful local environmental organization."

HOPE led the 15 year effort to protect the endangered Monterey pine forest from getting bulldozed into yet another Golf Course. It was HOPE's lawsuit that stopped the Aerial spraying of Secret Untested Pesticides over our Peninsula Cities. As of July 3, 2010 - we are the only organization supporting the "Right-Sized" Solution to our Peninsula water problem. HOPE achieves dozens of other protections every year that the media never reports on.

HOPE provides our public interest work free of charge to our community even though it costs the organization considerable time and money to produce it. 

We would like to continue to provide this service free.
