Direct Action activities
What can you do to help?
1) Help to mobilize people in your community. Spread the word about July 30
and the other actions. If you're in Philly, plan a march from your
neighborhood to join the major march on the Parkway. If you're from outside
of Philly, organize busses, carpools, etc.
2) Have your organization listed a an endorser of the Unity 2000 rally on
July 30 (see the list of current endorsers at the end of this email).
Endorsement does not imply any financial obligation. It means you support
the goals of the march and will help mobilize people to attend.
3) Serve as a coordinator in your community or school. We need local people
to serve as contacts for arranging your community's participation.
4) Send us money! This is going to cost a lot of money, and we will need a
lot of it early on. Contributions (not tax deductible) can be sent to:
PCAN, 3001 Walnut St., 5th Floor, Philadelphia, PA 19104. Email us if you
need a tax deduction for your contribution.
5) Stay informed by joining one of our email lists.
