VSDC Tabling at Capital Pride Festival (Volunteer Opportunity)

Help the Vegetarian Society of DC celebrate and support the Capital Pride Street Festival in DC. This landmark event brings over 250,000 visitors to Pennsylvania Ave for a day full of entertainment, music, food, drink, education, and celebration. Capital Pride Festival includes three stages of national and local talent and will host 300 exhibitors including local and community groups, national sponsors, local businesses, food vendors, restaurants and businesses looking to promote their services to our community.

VSDC will demonstrate our commitment and outreach to the GLBT community and highlight the VSDC Veg Out Group. We'll also focus on the powerful reasons to go vegan with resources and guidance to make and support the change. We'll also have some items for sale.

This is another fantastic opportunity in DC to reach many thousands of progressive people. Volunteers are needed (Sunday, June 9th) to assist for 2-3 hours each, from 10am - 7pm (including setup and breakdown).  The core tabling hours are 11am - 6pm. VSDC volunteers will hand out literature, answer questions, and present a positive image. No specific skills or knowledge are required.

Please join us! When you RSVP, please answer the questions that ask for your first and last name, email address, and phone number (this info will be visible only to organizers), and indicate what time of the day works best for you. All the volunteer scheduling and coordination will take place by email, so be sure to answer all the RSVP questions and keep an eye on your inbox.

VSDC BOOTH LOCATION - The actual location at the National Capital Pride Street Festival on Sunday, June 9th, will be announced soon. The festival will take place on Pennsylvania Ave between 3rd and 7th St NW.

    Thanks to everyone who came out yesterday to volunteer at the VSDC booth! It was wonderful meeting all of you. We had tons of traffic, collected lots of emails and sold a number of books and memberships. I really appreciate everyone taking the time! Thanks also to our backup volunteers.
