Things we can do:

*  Marches, Rallies, HempFests and other such Events for raising awareness and few $.  See Events for ideas.  Not only do we get our days in the sun but the sign making parties and other team activities are learning & growing opportunities as well.

*  Put together a Film Fest.  Get all the old favorites ("Reefer Madness", "Assassin of Youth") as well as the latest ("Grass", "Saving Grace", "Traffic").  Educate as well as entertain.

*  Hemp Fashion Show.  A very good way to demonstrate the value of hemp.  People are learning that hemp clothing is not only more durable and comfortable but as versatile as any other material.  Find a local retailer and establish a mutually beneficial relationship.

*  Hemp Pot Luck.  (pun intended)  Get together and have a hemp food cook off.  If we do it right, it could be a yearly event (like a chili feed) and draw media as well as be a tasty way to inform & educate.

*  Lobbying and other political action.  Letter writing and calling campaigns do have an effect, especially when legislators get them in batches.

Things you the individual can do:

*  Join up & speak out.  Spread the word. 
*  Write to & meet with media and legislators on your own.  One on one communications can be effective if done right.  The effort to educate this sector is neverending.
*  Vote!
*  Recruit others to all the above.
*  Support your local chapter or affiliate.  Not only with membership (financial) but in their daily operations. (database, web page maint, answering phones & emails)

What more you can do to help the cause: 
-Write. Follow-up; Go back and re-Contact the media and legislative representatives. Determine the effectiveness of your message, adjust if necessary, and either re-inforce the support they have or try to tell them, once again, how you feel about the war. Get everyone you know to do Write, email, call and fax your concerns on a regular basis.

-Spread the word. Tell your friends and neighbors about the cause and get them involved. Speak before public interest and community groups. Form/join neighborhood and local organizations.

-Research. Look up information. Write stories and contribute. Update us with News/info and help keep this Library current and functional.
