Subject: [baarn] Critical next few days for 20 million animals
I've been involved in Prop 2 (before it had a number) for over a year
now, and I can't believe how far we've come! We've reached the final
few days in great shape to get this passed!
This next few days will be critical for getting the word --and the
vote -- out about Proposition 2. Many voters will just vote for Obama
and not bother with the propositions, or don't know much about Prop 2
and may be swayed by the opposition's commercials. It is up to us to
Even if -- especially if -- you haven't been involved in Prop 2 thus
far, now is the time! Not only will the passage of Prop 2 help 20

other hand, if it does not pass, it will send the opposite message --
that we are not there yet. This would be devastating not just for
those animals but for the animal movement, killing our momentum after
thousands of volunteers and millions of dollars have been devoted to
Your participation in the next few days will help!
Ways you can help:
-Tell/email everyone you know to vote YES on Prop 2.
-Hold a sign at a busy area -- a BART station or busy intersection.
For those of you who have any nervousness about talking with people,
this is a perfect way for you to help.
-Hand out leaflets in a busy area. My "line": Vote YES on 2; it helps
20 million animals!" I just say it over and over. Sometimes I stick in
a "Vote YES on 2; it's sponsored by the Humane Society" or a "Vote YES
on 2; it's endorsed by the Democratic party." This is WAY easier than
