International Respect for Chickens Day May 4, 2009

“Please do an ACTION for Chickens in May!”


Dear UPC – Thank you for sending me posters and literature for International Respect for Chickens Day, as I requested. My office set aside time to let me address the issue at our meeting that week, and I was very pleased at the interest my coworkers showed. – Chalon Carroll Young, Esq.

INTERNATIONAL RESPECT FOR CHICKENS DAY, MAY 4 is an annual project launched by United Poultry Concerns in 2005 to celebrate chickens throughout the world and protest the bleakness of their lives in farming operations.

We urge people to do an ACTION for chickens on or around May 4. Ideas include leafleting on a busy street corner, holding an office party or classroom celebration, writing a letter to the editor, doing a radio call-in, tabling at the local church, school or shopping mall, hosting a vegan open house, or simply talking to family, friends or strangers about the plight – and delight – of chickens and how people can help them.
