      Subject: [baarn] Critical next few days for 20 million animals

      Hi everyone,

      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
      change this!

      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
      million animals, it will send a critical message to agribusiness
      throughout the country that it is not OK to raise animals in the
      cheapest ways possible without any regard for their wellbeing. On the
      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
      this effort.

      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
      gathering signatures!

      I can schedule you in a spot where people are needed in SF.

      You can get signs and leaflets at the CA Democratic Party office at
      939 Market St in SF. If you live outside SF, you can get flyers from

      Thank you for making a difference for 20 million animals, and for
      animals all over the country whose lives will be impacted by the
      passage of Prop 2.
