This will also be peaceful outreach for the billions of animals that are routinely abused in food production and also for the animals that are so severely abused in rodeo events. The National Western Stock Show is a large trade show for the animal agriculture industry, one that is characterized by brutality and violence towards animals.
We plan to have a big visual impact with a large "Stop Animal Cruelty" banner and a series of 3' x 4' posters (a total of 10) created by Joanna Lucas of Peaceful Prairie Sanctuary. The poster series can be viewed at http://www.peacefulpr... (http://www.peacefulprairie.org/eNews/Spring05/carevan.htm)
Great posters will be provided, as mentioned above, but feel free to make your own to the point, easy to read posters, if you like. We will also be providing leaflets as well. Afterwards, we can all grab a bite to eat or some coffee/tea if anyone would like to!
Please show your compassion for the voiceless. It is not enough to live compassionately, we must also act and speak up!
See our calendar for more rodeo demo dates and times.
