Activists teamed up at First Fridays art walk to present the Earthlings Experience to passersby. We used tablets and laptops to show the Earthlings documentary exposing the truth behind animal agriculture. Hundreds of people witnessed the animal cruelty and many stopped to ask questions.
By wearing masks, we invited the public to watch the film without feeling watched themselves. This helped to put the focus on the video, not the activists.
A volunteer with Mercy for Animals joined us to leaflet and engage people in conversation. Many people passing by thanked us and told us they were vegetarian or vegan already. Some even wanted to join us for future demos. The demo was a success and we plan to attend future First Friday events.
Special shout out to Malia, who organized this event. She even hand made these heart-shaped flyers to give out! Malia is now our official First Fridays organizer, and we are thrilled to have her on our team. Thank you to everyone who came out to stand for the animals!
