Georgia Animal Rights and Protection (GARP) is a 501c3 non-profit all volunteer run organization dedicated to the abolition of animal exploitation and suffering.
GARP focuses on educating the public about the abuse and cruelty that is inherent in the use of animals for food, entertainment, research and fashion. Event outreach, leafleting, demonstrating, lobbying for stronger anti-cruelty legislation, social and traditional media are some of the tools GARP utilizes in order to educate the public.
Join GARP and Atlanta Carriage Horse Advocates to leaflet for the Atlanta carriage horses on Super Bowl Weekend, Saturday, Feb. 2 and Sun. Feb. 3.
Soon the city will be packed with tourists who will be tempted to support the cruel carriage horse industry. We are ready with a fantastic MOBILE BILLBOARD, designed by PETA, that will highlight the cruel carriage horse industry, and tons of educational leaflets to hand out. Will you help us spread the word that horses don't belong on the city streets?
We need volunteers to hand out leaflets – lots of volunteers! We will be at the SkyView Atlanta Ferris Wheel with leaflets available on Saturday and Sunday from noon – 6:00 pm. We would like volunteers to take leaflets and spread out – pick your time and leafleting location and just hand out leaflets.
WHEN: Sat. Feb 2 and Sunday Feb. 3, anytime from 12 pm - 6:00 pm.
WHERE: 168 Luckie St. NW Atlanta
TIME: Whatever time works for you. Just contact Julie at [masked] and let her know you would like to help.
Parking: Parking will be scarce and expensive during Super Bowl weekend, so the best way to get there will be Marta. The closest Marta Stations to the SkyView Atlanta Ferris Wheel is the Peachtree Center Station (about a 7-minute walk) or the Dome Station at Philips Arena (about a 10-minute very easy down walk down Centennial Olympic Park Drive.)
