POST YOUR LOCAL ACTION PLANS ON CODEPINK'S NATIONAL CALENDAR
Here are some resources available on 5yearstoomany.org that can assist with your local organizing:
Media Kit: A sample press release, and tips for getting media coverage of your local event.
Posters and Flyers:
* * Banners:
UFPJ has been able to arrange for very cheap production of banners that
you can use on stages, in marches or in other activities you are
organizing. The banners will be made on yellow vinyl with black
lettering. (This provides an excellent contrast for both color and
black and white photographs -- especially important for media
coverage.) They will withstand bad weather and can be used again by
your group. All of the banners will, in smaller lettering, say United
for Peace and Justice with our URL, but there will be plenty of room
for your message and your group's name. We wish we could offer these
for free, but we will have to charge you for the cost of the banner and
the shipping (but it will still, most likely, be cheaper than what
you'll be able to find locally). If you are interested in this, please
send a memo with the dimensions of the banner you want, as well as the
text you want on the banner. Send this info to firstname.lastname@example.org
we will get back to you with details re: cost, timing, etc.
