Socially Conscious Valentine-Making Party

  • The Creativity Caravan 28 South Fullerton Avenue Montclair, NJ, 07042 United States

Come by and make a socially conscious valentine with us.

1. We'll support the Alliance for Fair Food by sending "anti-Valentines" to the Wendy's corporation and join thousands of farmworkers, people of faith, students and consumers of conscience in refusing to patronize Wendy’s until the world’s third largest hamburger chain joins the Fair Food Program! (For over three years, farmworkers and consumers have been demanding that Wendy’s join its major competitors – Taco Bell, McDonald’s, Subway and Burger King – in participating in the Fair Food Program. Yet, Wendy's has instead consciously and shamefully opted to profit from farmworker poverty and abuse, continuing to cling to the low-bar standards of the past when presented with an acclaimed and proven alternative.)

2. We'll support some of our favorite non-profits and send them Valentines to say thank you for all their hard work protecting the rights of fellow humans and being our champions of justice. Pick your favorite and write them a love letter!

3. Send a Valentine to a politician - local or national - who has taken a stand you agree with, a fine federal judge, or an activist you admire and tell them why you love and support their work in the world.

4. Make an alternative valentine. A love letter to Mother Earth - "You're Hot, but a little too hot. We'll take better care of you!" Or a note to a crush, "Be mine, in a consensual way. <3"
