Help Spread the Word About Our World AIDS Day Bloomberg Bagel Boycott
From: Thorpe, David
Yours truly is helping organize a "schmear" campaign against Mayor Bloomberg on World AIDS Day, Dec. 1. Every year Bloomberg invites the AIDS community to his World AIDS Day Bagel Breakfast--then tries to slash AIDS services in his city budget a month later. We are protesting outside the breakfast--as giant bagels who refuse to be implicated in the mayor's hypocrisy!
Please spread the word about this important blow for effective, progressive public health policy--and arts and crafts! (See one of my colleagues, preparing to schmear, attached).

Event details also at:
Attached is a longer word doc with full event details to share with your friends and organizations that might be interested in participating. We hope to mobilize all New Yorkers who care about helping the poor and chronically ill--and about baked goods.
Yes, in some ways this entire event was a pretext for yours truly to dress up as bagel. Come see my stunning creation (think: googly eyes) at 8am at Grand Army Plaza, Dec. 1. Amy Sedaris eat your heart out.
