Flyers, and Social Media


As we grow ever closer to the date of our Goodwill Informational Protest, I
wanted to be sure that those still interested in participating are able to
obtain protest signs.  Unfortunately, we will be unable to ship signs in
time for the august 25 protests, but if you are willing to contact a local
printshop to get copies of  the protest signs, I can email you, or your
local printshop, files that can be used to print the protest signs.  The
signs should be printed on 20" x 28".   White card stock sturdy enough to be
used as a sign.  You should obtain a four-foot length of 2-inches-wide by
1-inch-thick lumber to support each sign.  A staple gun should be used to
attach the lumber between two signs so that the sign can be read from either

Informational flyers are available for download from
www.nfb.org/fairwages<http://www.nfb.org/fairwages>.  Even if you are not
attending an informational protest at your local Goodwill, take the time to
print some flyers and hand them out to people you may interact with over the
weekend.  Through our concerted public awareness effort, we will bring this
unfair, discriminatory, immoral practice to an end.

We also encourage everyone to take advantage of social media to spread the
word about the protests.  Twitter users should Use the twitter hash tag
#fairwages and the Goodwill twitter handle of @goodwillintl to post about
local protests, and Facebook users should Post comments to Goodwill's
Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/GoodwillIntl.

If you are planning to conduct and informational protest in your area,
please provide me with the following information:
