This summer, Ava Barcelona and Action Volunteers for Animals made a huge United Poultry Concerns banner and took it to the streets along with UPC literature. Ava told UPC: "The banner can be read from very far away. When thousands of cars passed by us throughout the summer, the cheering was very loud, hundreds of thumbs up! During the week of the Taste of Chicago, we stood with the banner near the main convention center entrance. Though most of the million visitors came to "taste meat," we did not have to deal with a single case of confrontation. Without a doubt, this day was the highlight of my life."
