- Community Outreach: The need for publicity coincides with the outreach to all our communities. We need to contact GLBTQI organizations, political organizations, religious organizations, minority organizations, schools, etc. (any suggestions for the list? Please comment.) and ask them to contact their members. These requests for publicity and attendance are the most effective when they come from community members, so if you belong to a religious group, an activist group, a political group, etc., please talk to folks in your community about coming to the protest.
- Schools: college and high school students, particularly members of GLBTQI organizations, that are interested in volunteering with publicity or organizing – contact your organizations for publicity, put up fliers around campus, etc. If you’re interested in organizing your school’s club for publicity or have familiarity with organizing events, please check out the fliers page and spread the word with your organization!
- Fliers: We need to get the fliers up and out, which is where everyone with access to a printer and a stapler or tape come in: print the fliers and put them up at your community centers, dorms, apartment buildings, coffee shops, stores, libraries, and any place where you see a bulletin board. Please be respectful of public and private property and avoid posting fliers on bus stops and historic lamp posts. Print some fliers, put them in your bag in the morning, and stick them up as you go about your day. This is a (non-comprehensive) list of the areas that need to be fliered.
- Internet: Go viral. We need as much publicity across the internet as possible. The Facebook event is Join the Impact – San Francisco. Link to this post and cross-post it to your blogs, your Facebooks and MySpaces and Orkuts and any other social network, add it to Digg, StumbleUpon, Reddit, Newsvine, share it on Google Reader, and get the word out! If you are familiar with MySpace and want to create a page, email me.
We regret that we cannot provide translations for fliers in other cities. However, the “Fight the H8″ pdfs are editable in Photoshop; please feel free to edit them for your local rallies.
