Get the Lead Out! ACTIVISTS NEEDED

Date:

Event Type:
Protest
Organizer/Author:

Location Details:
At the center of Union Square by the Victory statue

The holiday season is here, and we are still hearing reports about new toy hazards almost every day. Recently, the Consumer Product Safety Commission recalled Aqua Dots, one of the most popular toys on the market, because it has a coma-inducing toxin in it!

It’s time to ACT NOW—that’s why we need your help with the “12 Days of Safe Shopping” campaign. We need activists next Tuesday, Dec. 4 to tell retailers and manufacturers to keep poisons out of our kids’ toys.

Activists will be handing out “Get the Lead Out” tee-shirts and stickers for shoppers to wear, as well as retailer demands coupon books. At our Black Friday events in Chicago, Boston, Minneapolis, and New York, we gained both local and national press coverage. For more information about the campaign, visit http://www.notinmycart.org.

Activists will meet at the center of Union Square by the Victory statue at 9:45am. A Consumers Union staffer will be on site. Please contact Daniela Nunez, Consumers Union Grassroots Organizer at 512-477-4431 ext. 117 or dnunez [at] consumer.org if you are coming or if you have any questions.
