SPECIAL RALLY FOR WOLVES UPDATE!
Dear Rally attendees and supporters,
Here’s a special update for The National Rally to Protect America’s Wolves! that we know you’ll find both helpful and inspiring.
The Rally is a week away and we hope to see you there!
Currently there are eleven exceptional, dedicated and inspiring grassroots wolf defenders who will be speaking at the Rally. Our speakers include the director of a wolf refuge out West who has been a magnificent wolf defender for decades, an active duty police officer from Wisconsin, a retired college professor from that same state, a former rancher from Colorado, an amazing native person from the Upper MidWest, and other excellent wolf defenders from Idaho, Maine, Massachusetts and California. One of the speakers is close friends with world renowned conservationist Jane Goodall and he will be reading a statement from Ms. Goodall especially prepared for America’s wolves and for this Rally. We are still working on having one of the best wildlife defenders in the US Congress at the Rally, along with a former governor who has a wonderful track record for wildlife.
Thanks to the generosity of one of our Rally Partners, Adopt a Wolf Pack, we will be offering Rally T-Shirts at the event. In exchange for a modest donation to our wolf defender cause, you can proudly wear a National Rally to Protect America’s Wolves! T-Shirt. You may want to arrive before the official 11AM start time, as we expect these T-Shirts to go quickly.
The Rally is within yards of the Washington Monument which is a white marble tower, pointing 555 feet into the sky. It is the most visible monument on the National Mall. Our Rally has the Northeast Quadrant of the Washington Monument reserved as the site of our demonstration and rally for wolves. If you need to, you can ask a national park service officer or local police officer to point you to the Northeast Quadrant of the Washington Monument. Check our Rally website for a google map of the location.
9AM to 11AM – Informal outdoor networking event for wolf defenders.
(Your best opportunity to connect with your fellow wolf defenders and to buy a Rally T-shirt.)
11AM – Rally officially begins.
11AM to 1PM – Speakers communicate to the attendees.
1:30PM to 3PM – March for America’s Wolves! from the Washington Monument to the US Capitol Building.
The best signs to bring to the Rally are those that are home-made. Home-made signs attract more attention, from fellow wolf defenders and from the media. We want to keep our wolf defender messages positive and inspiring. It’s OK to protest animal cruelty and abuse, which is certainly part of what we are fighting to stop, but do that in the context of the respect, decency, co-existence and protection we are demanding for America’s wolves.
Here’s some sign suggestions:
*** Decency Respect Co-Existence: The New American Way
*** America’s Wolves Must Be Federally Protected!
*** Americans LOVE America’s Wolves!
*** Montanans LOVE America’s Wolves! (substitute your own state)
*** Respect & Co-Existence NOT Demonization & Persecution
*** Wolves Have Families, too!
*** Wolves are Vital and Beautiful Beings
Thank you for defending and fighting to protect America’s wolves. They need every single one of us.
See you at the Rally, next Saturday, September 7, 2013.
