Help us pass out flyers and sign up volunteers at the largest vegetarian festival in DC on Saturday, September 24, from 11 – 6 pm. It’s expected that there will be over 15,000 people attending this festival and we expect that many in attendance will support Jill Stein or be open to support her. You can join us whenever you can get there, and leave when you must. Give us 1, 2 or 3 hours, to make contact with the attendees and provide them with information about Jill and help win them over with your enthusiasm. We will have a table at the festival and will be giving out flyers for Jill and have yard signs, T-shirts, and buttons for sale as well. Cheap too.
We will be at booth #70. If you have a Jill Stein T-shirt, please wear it. We will sell them to our volunteers for $7. For all others, the price will be $10.
The canvass at the DC Vegfest is a joint effort by Jill Stein volunteers in the Washington Metropolitan Area. If you have any questions about this effort, please contact me, Joe Corbett at firstname.lastname@example.org or by cell at 301-755-7899. Or contact Diana Castillo at 202-640-0054.
The best way to get there is by taking the Metro to the Navy Yard station. See Directions below
