I have been gathering from time to time at Rainbow Acres, the local health food store on Washington just west of Centinela. Almost everyone signs there, though, because it's a small store, you probably won't get more than 25 sigs an hour. Please contact me so I can explain their policy and let you know which days/times have the highest traffic. THIS IS AN UNTAPPED LOCATION!



Thanks all,
Danielle

Subject: Progress in Signature Gathering for 2008!

Greetings fellow signature gatherers (in Santa Monica, MDR, PacPal, Venice, and Malibu):

Happy New Year to you all!  Today I had a fruitful day of signature gathering at the Farmer's Market in Pacific Palisades! (I hope you enjoy my pun!)  But seriously, I got over 60 signatures in a little over 2 hours, bringing me a little closer to my pledge of 1000 signatures (still not quite half-way there, but I fully intend to get there before the end)!  How is signature gathering going for you all?  Does anyone want a signature gathering buddy?  We only have 6.5 weeks left to get the necessary number of signatures to make the ballot! 

I talked with the General Manager at the Santa Monica Co-op a few days ago asking permission to collect signatures outside and he said it would be alright as long as it was not done more than a few hours at a time and a few times per week.  It's located on the corner of 16th Street and Broadway at 1525 Broadway in Santa Monica (zip code 90404). Like Trader Joe's and Whole Foods, there are health-conscious types who shop there who (hopefully) would be apt to sign...if you'd like to check it out or come with me to collect signatures later this week, please let me know.  We should coordinate somewhat so as to respect the guidelines of not exceeding a few hours, and a few times per week.

Anyone interested in combining leafletting/ vegan outreach with the signature gathering is welcome to join a group of activists, the United Animal Advocates of L.A. (http://animalrights.meetup.com/177 ) at Real Food Daily for dinner in Santa Monica this coming Friday, Jan. 11th at 6 pm. We'll have the outreach on the Third Street Promenade from 8-10 pm, where we have a video showing of how animals are treated in factory farms and encourage passersby to try a veg diet and/or reduce animal product consumption.  If either of these activities interest you, please email me for further details and to RSVP.

I think outside veg restaurants and the Farmer's Markets are going to be prime places for signatures.  Also, SMC (Santa Monica College) is fairly good, although the problem there is that a lot of students are not registered voters, so be careful of that. I plan to go there again later this month.
