Demonstrate first amendment rights
Organized by: Joel M
In order to organize a demonstration against fume events in masks we must have people to demonstrate and physically be present.. Truth is because of the fear factor, work trip factor or previous engagements many FAs cannot participate in person but have pledged support. Also legally we cannot pass out flyers or wear masks in uniform but our friends can!
We have two options to go with depending on the money raised:
- We can go with a professional company that creates demonstrations called "Crowds on Demand". They will organize all materials, flyers, signs, etc. and non-employees. They will seek permits if needed, they will brief the demonstrators so they will be able to answer general questions of our cause and they will have a representative there manning the demonstration to ensure all is runs smoothly. The deal is 4 bases (minimum) must be participating to provide 10 demonstrators for TWO days working 4 hours each day. That's $2,900 per base.
2. We can locate people ourselves through an app called "task rabbit". A donation of $30 or greater will allow, on average, for one person that we find to assist for one hour through "task rabbit". Our plan is two hours but will lower to an hour if not enough funds are raised. "Task rabbit" is an app we can use this outlet in any major US metropolitan city (base). I'd like to raise the money soon so I can begin asking "task rabbits" in each city. Funding needed for this would include 10 demonstrators for ONE day and two hours. $600 per base plus $150 for supplies for banners, masks, etc.
Thank you for your support. We FAs going will be present and there standing proud, silently and sending a loud message. Please donate and make your voice heard on this day as well. Thank you.
*We will have to go base by base as fundraising grows. The order of bases we are booking first are based on number of FAs that have committed to attend at each particular base and we will go in rotation until we reach 3-10 at each base depending on money raised for budget. I do need at least ONE contact person at each base in order to send this demonstration over to that base.
