As you consider, plan, and act, In Defense of Animals
(IDA) will be there to help you. IDA can help you promote your events

1. Preparing fact sheets to hand out at your events. If
you have a university in your area it is very likely that animals are
under attack in those labs. We can help you find out what is being done
to them and who is doing it. Request this service early; demand is
likely to be high.
2. Promoting your events on our WWAIL website. Last
year, in the build up to WWAIL, our site received nearly one million
hits a month. The public, the media, other activists, and the
vivisection community can learn that efforts are growing and our resolve
3. Helping to place ads in campus and community
newspapers. IDA will match up to $250 for placement of ads the week
before your events. We can provide ready-made ads of any size. Place
your organization's name next to ours and show that we stand together,
unified and resolute.
4. Assisting you with news releases. IDA has worldwide
faxing capability and literally thousands of media contacts in our
database. Request this service early to assure you are served on time.
Big business and big $cience have consumed compassion.
