Our associate producer Dr. Teri Mitchell, APRN, CNM, IBCLC handed out flyers for our screening at the Lone Star Film Festival last weekend (Oct 21, 2017) on the North Texas Natural Parenting Booth at Texas Veggie Fair.
This was the 4th year that North Texas Natural Parenting has had a booth at the Texas Veggie Fair 2017 (a vegan food truck style event). This year, we joined with Your Whole Baby.]
We gave away close to 1,000 bottles of water, marked with our message, the Your Whole baby website, and the American Circumcision film website (also with at least a card asking them to watch An Elephant in the Hospital).
We spoke to people from high school through senior citizen, Jewish people, school teachers, physicians, parents of adult sons, pregnant couples, Christians, various races.
A woman came to the booth to tell us that she kept her son intact after speaking with us there 2 years ago. One school teacher taught 7th and 8th grade health class & wanted to know what info would be good for his students.
The animal rights crowd is very open to our message. Many people hadn’t ever thought about it before, but we could see it click. There was a lot of interest in the film, both from people who already care about this issue, and those whom this is new for…
I think there’s a few flyers left & we plan to distribute them on community bulletin boards.
A huge thanks to Teri for helping to get the word out. You can find her midwifery practice at www.bundleborn.com.
We encourage people to invite friends and tell others about this cause and film.
