I just found out it is coming up soon, later in April...what kind of advocacy do you think I could do, without pissing people off? Put up flyers, wear a T-shirt?
Anyone have any creative ideas?

sometimes public libraries plan activities -- could you volunteer to help with that?

I love the way you put that! I'm perpetually looking for ways to advocate my position without pissing anyone off (in the flesh, anyway.)

Put a sign in your yard?
Write a letter to the paper?
Put up flyers on public bulletin boards?

These are good...sometimes I think my mere presence pisses people off :, but this time I'd like them to listen!

Also, attaching a signature to all your email messages?
Printing out little stamp-type things and gluing them to your outgoing mail?
