From: The Washington Square Park General Assembly <firstname.lastname@example.org>
In case you haven't heard, Angela Davis has agreed to speak to the GA
in Washington Square Park, Sunday October 30th at 5:00pm.
We need to write a press release for Angela Davis. The Zuccotti Media
Working Group, but we need a list of contacts.
Who has skills and can assist with this initiative?
We already have an extensive list of media contacts from working in
PR, mostly larger media outlets. What we need is would like for word
to spread as far and wide as possible. Miss Davis is very well known
as a civil and women's rights activist whose history goes all the way
back to Greenwich Village in the sixties. Her name alone is likely to
be recognized by anyone over the age of 30, especially if they are
from New York City.
Thinking, "I want to help, but don't know how" ? Here are some ways:
Do you have friends? (It's ok if you don't..Make new ones at GA!)
Tell your friends, family, classmates & colleagues (you know, that
social networking thing?) and if they ask "What's a GA? Is that
contagious?", tell them it IS contagious, and then show them the
Do you write? Contribute copy for a press release!
Do you design? Create a cool graphic of Angela Davis and her
beautiful afro, announcing her appearance this Sunday at 5!
Do you live near any community organizations? Churches, schools,
supermarkets, a co-op, a YMCA? Get them a copy of the press release,
and you might be surprised how many people they can muster. If you
don't feel ready to contact them yourself, just get an email address
and send it to us, and we will include them in the press release email
Incentive: you can call yourself a proud member of the Communications
Let's pull together and make this happen with some big numbers this Sunday!
