Fur Free Friday 2013

  • Nov 29, 2013 · 11:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

JOIN
Animal Action Network
AND
In Defense of Animals
for our annual peaceful
Fur Free
Friday Demonstration!

Our main message will be,
BE AN ANGEL, DON'T BUY FUR!

Feel free to wear wings
and/or halos (or not).

We will provide other great posters
and our Stop Animal Cruelty banner as well.

NOTE: The demonstration will be turned around this year, in case it's cold out so we will hopefully have the sun in front of Marks Lloyd's before it goes behind the building.


PLEASE READ THESE GUIDLINES FOR ATTENDEES AND ORGANIZERS: http://www.meetup.com/AnimalActionNetwork/pages/Animal_ACTion_Network_DEMONSTRATION_GUIDELINES/


Leaflets and posters will be provided, but feel free to make your own, kid friendly, easy to read, to the point posters.

Where we will be and what will we be doing (if you can't get there on time, feel free to catch up with us when you get there):

PART 1 - We will start at 11:30 AM in front of Mark Lloyd's Furs, 263 Josephine (between 2nd and 3rd)

Part 2 - At about 12:30 we will leave Marks Lloyd's and walk to Hamilton's Furs on 3rd and Columbine. We'll spend about half an hour there.

Part 3 - Finally, we will walk on to Neiman Marcus, 3030 East 1st Avenue in front of Cherry Creek Mall for the last hour.

What to Bring:
Bring your own water (remember the doggies water, too), sun screen, an umbrella and a jacket. Dress in layers in case it warms up.

Spread the word! See you there!!

    Thank you all for coming out for the animals yesterday! It was a perfect day and everyone in the group was so great! It was wonderful to see all four corners covered with activists at the first two locations, and lining a full block at the mall! Yahoo!!! Tons of leaflets were handed out and many more passersby saw our messages for the animals with all your beautiful hands holding all those posters! Even the fellows working on the median I front of the mall, asked for flyers and thanked us for being there! What a joy to hear all you voices cheering for every supportive honk, which there were many!! So many people are agains fur, and we are educating more! We DO make a difference! It was the best FFF ever!! I am so happy that I got to be part of it with all of you!! xoxoxo

      We have our own beautifully made Animal Action Network leaflets! They are really nice!

      Thank you for responding, Beth Ann. Yes Ali, we're all set with leaflets. Since we have a local organization, it's good to give local information. Besides fur, our flyers covers clothing made from several animals; wool, silk, leather, etc. We have a site full of information for people to check out as well, and we include links from nonlocal organizations. See you Friday!

    History shows that people who end up changing the world are always nuts,until they are right ,and then they are geniuses ..

    Change starts within first. Only then can we change others.

    Fur industries not telling you what goes on behind closed doors ,I believe when you know the truth then it is your obligation to pass it on to others .doing something is better then doing nothing at all..
    Public need to hear the truth

    Please stand up for these animals. GET OUT IN THE STREET TO SHOW THIS. Inform the masses. It's not that much of an effort but it can make a huge change.
