Building community is the real key to organizing for the change we are calling for in the streets. It’s tough to measure the real impact. The bottom line is we have fun and it is free. This in itself is a radical transformation from the mundane, commercial existence we all suffer from everyday.
Dear Nice, Naturist, Pedal-Powered Peoples and Allies,
Just a few days until we fill the streets with hundreds of bodies as bare as we dare to get our messages out. We love our bodies, we love our planet, and we don’t want to see either exposed to danger or pollution! And most of all we love the right to be free and have fun!
The buzz is out there and we anticipate bigger numbers of participants who might drop their pants than last year, so now is the time to STEP UP AND VOLUNTEER! We will need a huge push of cooperation and collaboration to keep everyone safe, have fun, and have the impact we want. PLEASE FOLLOW THIS LINK to an overly-detailed spreadsheet for VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES!
Times are approximate and tasks will probably be flexible, but please sign up to pitch in where you can. We don’t need to fill all the slots, but having reliable people to make sure key things will get done is essential. The tasks will be described in more detail on the Wiki, which will see a complete update by Saturday morning, so check it! Any questions feel free to reply to firstname.lastname@example.org, and send a phone number or other reliable contact info if you can commit to any of the slots.
Now it is only hinted at in the spreadsheet, but we need a HUGE CREATIVE PUSH to accompany or clothing-optional ride.
If you are a performer, a fire-dancer, a juggler, a musician, a drag queen or whaterver, WE NEED YOU to help make the East River Park (@ Delancey) starting location a festive atmosphere, or to spice up the after-party at 99 S. 6th St in Brooklyn with your hula-hoop break-dancing!
Likewise, body painting, creative costuming, banners, signs and flags are all Do-It-Yourself. So bring ideas and materials if you can to supplement our the paint (we will have plenty of the basic stuff). Got lots of funny hats? Want to make some fun masks? Got a supply of glitter you have been sitting on? Bring what you can! We will transport unused stuff from the park to storage and it can be retrieved later.
Lastly, any support in terms of food, drink or other donations of all sorts are most welcome to support the bodies at the park and on the ride. Just let us know how you want to pitch in, and we will make it count!
