    Before I knew that there would be a MeetUp for this, I had contacted ADI and requested that they send me some flyers to hand out in protest of using wild animals in their performances. I was only going to request 200 leaflets and a couple of posters but should I ask them for more in case any of you would like them as well? They also asked if we have any media outreach planned and if not, they would contact the media on our behalf. Please let me know your thoughts.

    2 · May 6, 2014

    • Ann S.

      Thank you, Rebecca! Our org, AAN, has our own circus flyers; English/Spanish. We have a lot of posters, but ADI has good ones so feel free to bring the ones you already have. We also have a large banner(with poles) that fits all actions. We'll be the local organizers for ADI demos at another event this summer. When I get the dates confirmed from them, I'll post the demos on here, so stayed tuned! AAN also has our own fur, seal hunt, rodeo, and vegan flyers. Let us know if you ever need anything.

    www.TheCruelTruth.com You can be aware of the darkness and fear generated without ever feeding that side of yourself. When we focus on building the things we love, rather than the things we don't, we channel our reality in the direction that aligns with our true passion.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
