|Several Events over several days|
As we have reported before, South Korea's Ministry for the Office of Government Policy Coordination has proposed a scheme to hygienically control - and effectively legalize - the dog meat trade in their country. IDA strongly opposes this plan, which is supported only by the relatively small number of Koreans who buy and sell dog meat. The vast majority of Korean citizens have never eaten dog meat and wish to see the abhorrent practice banned for good.
Please help IDA educate attendees at the Korean Trade Expo about the Korean Government's cruel plans. IDA will be at the Expo to gather signatures on postcards and hand out leaflets urging people to ask the Government to enforce laws and call off the plans to hygienically control dog meat. Please join other IDA volunteers for this important outreach opportunity. E-mail Kristie@idausa.org with times and dates you are available to leaflet.
Dates and locations:
- Thursday, May 5 and Friday May 6 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Radisson Miyako Hotel, San Francisco
- Saturday, May 7 from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Treasure Island (this is the Exhibition and Korean Folk festival)
