Thanksgiving Vigil for Turkeys
Please Join Us in Bethesda, MD, November 20th

United Poultry Concerns will hold a Vigil for Turkeys on Friday evening, November 20th from 7:00 to 8:30pm. Please join us at the Giant Food Store corner of Arlington Road & Elm Street, in Bethesda, Maryland, to leaflet and hold posters on behalf of the millions of turkeys who are being slaughtered for Thanksgiving Day.

The Vigil will begin with a five-minute talk by UPC President Karen Davis about the atrocities committed against turkeys. This will be followed by a silent demonstration, including leafleting and sign-holding, until 8:25pm. UPC member, Sarah Kindrick, will conclude the Vigil with a five-minute eulogy for all of the turkeys who have suffered and died needlessly for Thanksgiving.

For more information, please call Sarah Kindrick at 301-496-2253 (day) and 301-740-9455 (evening). Or call United Poultry Concerns at 757-678-7875.

We look forward to having you with us to remember the turkeys and to advocate for a compassionate Thanksgiving celebration. UPC will provide our Turkeys brochures, Life Can Be Beautiful - Go Vegan! brochures, Banner and Posters. All we need is YOU!
