Hello everyone!

Please join Mercy For Animals as we promote equality for all at the fun-filled NYC Pride Parade this Sunday! We will march in the parade behind an MFA logo banner that declares ?No one is free when others are oppressed,? with rainbow flags, bells and whistles, and have our best leafleters along the sides. Wear your MFA t-shirt, or, if you don't have one, we'll provide them. Join us for the fun and show your support of equality and animal advocacy!

Schedule for Sunday, June 27:
9am to 10:15am: Bagel breakfast at the MFA Advocacy Center (332 E. 88th St)

10:30am: Assemble at 40th Street between Madison and Park

11am: Our section begins the march

Pick up your MFA t-shirt:
If you do not already have an MFA t-shirt, you can pick one up for FREE (although donations are welcome) at the MFA Advocacy Center located at 332 E. 88th Street between 1st and 2nd. You can stop by the office Thursday before 6pm, Friday between 10am and 7:30pm or on Sunday between 9am and 10:15am. If you are unable to pick up your shirt during these times, please contact me via email or phone [masked]) to make special arrangements.

The March:
We step off at 11am at 40th between Madison and Park and we will end the march at Greenwich and 10th Streets. Click on this link to download the parade route: http://www.nycpride.org/march.html

The march is a little longer than 3 miles. Participants may leave the parade at any time, but you will not be able to enter the parade after we step off at 11am. We will have bathroom passes that people can use to access port-o-potties along the parade route.

What to bring:
I strongly encourage all marchers to wear sunscreen and comfortable shoes and to bring plenty of water to stay hydrated. Keep in mind that you will need to carry anything you bring with you.

Invite Your Friends and Family:
Anyone and everyone is invited to march with MFA this Sunday. Please feel free to bring your friends and family to participate in this fun-filled event! For more information on the parade and other pride events, go to www.NYCPride.org

We hope to see you on Sunday! Please do not hesitate to email or call me at[masked] if you have any questions or need more information.

In solidarity,

Matt Rice
