Detroit Warped Tour Leafletting @ Meadow Brook Ampitheatre
Jul 20 @ 11:00 am – 9:00 pm

The Humane League is looking for volunteers who can spare a few hours on Friday, July 20, to leaflet at the Detroit Warped Tour at Meadow Brook Amphitheater in Rochester. Warped Tour is the largest traveling music festival in North America and provides an amazing opportunity to reach an ideal demographic — young people (many of whom are already of the “alternative” mindset given the bands and artists typically on the tour).

The festival runs from 11am to 9pm, but volunteers are welcome anytime.
 
The Humane League’s mission is to reduce the suffering of as many animals as possible, as effectively as possible while also inspiring people to make more compassionate food choices. 
 
If you can help out, please contact Alexa Bergamo at alexa.bergamo17@gmail.com.
