Okay, am starting to panic, in a mellow Wash-way
, about our ticket sales and spreading the signal :-)
We need all our brothers-in-arms to do what they can to get the word out - post flyers, blog about it, post notices on your myspace, livejournal or facebook accounts, etc.! Flyering does work (6 tickets were just sold yesterday who heard about it from a flyer!). The theater can seat 350! Wouldn't it be awesome to sell out?!
If anyone wants to volunteer during the screening, let me know. Anyone who wants to meet up before hand, please come out to our Volunteer Meeting at Hand in Hand this Wednesday at 7PM
I've created a page that has different ways you can help, including a nice web badge to put on your blogs!http://www.atlantabrowncoats.com/more/index.cfm?Fuseaction=more_6591
And in case you're spreading the good word via email, here's the scoop:

One is to whisper in the ear of the masses, try subtlely and gradually to change the gender expectations and mythic structures of our culture. That's me. The other is to step up and confront the thousands of atrocities that are taking place around the world on an immediate, one-by-one basis. That's a great deal harder, and that's Equality Now. It's not about politics; it's about basic human decency.
- Joss Whedon All of us at Equality Now continue to be amazed by and grateful for the Browncoats' and Serenity fans' generous and committed support for our work. Their energy and enthusiasm is inspiring and these screenings are coming at a critical time when we are especially in need of funds! We thank each and every one of them!
