Organizing a Demonstration
Demonstrations are a powerful way to draw attention to an issue and pressure companies and lawmakers into taking meaningful action for animals. They can be used to directly protest a business’ cruel practice, or to create a spectacle while you deliver signed petitions to a decision maker. Equipped with our resources and campaign posters, COK volunteers have led many successful protests, including outside of a Tyson Foods shareholder event at the New York Stock Exchange, during a poultry industry festival in Arkansas, and at McDonald’s restaurants. To get started with this kind of action, visit our Organizing a Demonstration Guide!
