New Meeting: Outreach on Hollywood Boulevard

From: JD
Sent on: Thursday, April 3, 2008 6:42 PM
Announcing a new meeting for United Animal Advocates of LA!

What: Outreach on Hollywood Boulevard

When: Saturday, April 5, 3:00 PM

Who should come: Anyone with a sincere desire to help animals by raising awareness about their plight in factory farms.

Why: Meet other like-minded people who care about animals, their health, the environment. Educate the public about animal suffering they know nothing about!

Meeting Description: Hi everyone,

Join us in bringing animal rights outreach to the heart of Hollywood! A new leafletting/outreach opportunity with simultaneous video outreach showing "Meet Your Meat" and "Earthlings" will be held on Hollywood Boulevard, from 3-5pm this Saturday, April 5th. We will be located along Hollywood Boulevard, on the sidewalk near El Capitan Theater. Parking is available in the underground Hollywood & Highland Center parking structure. Enter the structure on Orange Drive between Hollywood and Franklin (pay to park).

Leafletting with Vegan Outreach literature is a fun, productive way to raise awareness and plant seeds (pun _intended_) for people to change their diets. Check out www.veganoutreach.org for more info on the wonderful work that activists are doing to inform people all over the U.S. and abroad about the plight of farmed animals. We are their voice and each of us counts because there are many fewer of us than them (approximately 3-5 million vegans in the U.S., and over 10 billion farmed animals who meet their end in the U.S. each year).

While leafletting can be a little unnerving at first, with practice it becomes second nature. Try out different opening lines and see what works for you (see the post on the message board on leafletting tips). Remember to try and stay positive!! This outreach is friendly interactions only, meaning all participants are committed to engaging others only in positive, respectful and freindly ways.

Hope to see you there!
