Be an “upstander” with ARAUNY.
Let’s stand up for our friends on Sunday, October 2nd, from 1:00 to 2:30 pm in front of the East Avenue Wegmans in Rochester.
We will stand on the public sidewalk at the southwest corner of the parking lot.
Signs will be provided or you can bring your own (but we ask that you please make sure they are aligned with our core values). Keep signs very simple – this is auto traffic.
We never shout. Please don’t wear animal products such as fur, leather, silk, wool, etc. – people notice and comment. Please don’t bring pets.
Rain or shine, dress for 90 minutes in whatever Rochester throws at us, umbrellas are fine, check our website in case of dangerous weather.
Parking is on-street.
Sign suggestions (You may like to substitute one particular kind of animal, or an individual animal’s name/photo, for the word “Animals” below in order to further personalize your message):
