Background on Civic Center campaign:
Since April of last year, LGBT Compassion and AoC have filed complaints and taken legal measures against bird vendors exercising animal cruelty, while monitoring their activities.
Civic Center has been a challenge, particularly with the primary vendor, Raymond Young Poultry, but we have been able to get media attention on this issue, as well as have impact on other bird vendors acting outside the law.
Because of the lack of action on the city's part against this animal cruelty, we are successfully amplifying attention with peaceful demonstrations.
We have just completed our latest demonstration on Wednesday, the 24st of March, which was our first weekday demonstration at the market.
Even with our small advocate number, Wednesday, we were able to get Market management's notice, as well as distribute a sizable number of pamphlets. Once again, vendors expressed their support, and many patrons thanked us for our advocacy.
Demonstrations have been particularly successful for the last few weeks, as we have distributed nearly 1,500 leaflets.
YOU ARE WELCOME TO JOIN OUR EVENTS!
We are pleased with our effectiveness but it would contribute to have more advocates join us at this event.
We could use your help.
We've been able to get market attention and make a statement with our small group (we certainly have been noticed!), but we need more people if we want this to be an effective campaign.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
