Flyering is a great way to introduce DN! to a variety of people.
You can flyer to:
- Raise awareness about DN!, letting people know what station and times it airs in your community.
- Help gain support for a campaign to bring DN! to your local radio and TV stations.
- Announce an event where Amy Goodman will be speaking.
No matter what your reason is, there are lots of ways to get your flyers seen.
- Where allowed, post flyers on streetlamps and in other public spaces like coffee shops and farmer’s markets.
- Table at a conference, educational fair, or outdoor market. See Tabling Tips for ideas on how.
- Hand out flyers in front of grocery stores, public transportation stops, in lines at movies, at concerts, in front of museums or high traffic intersections.
Flyering in groups is always more fun and reaches more people. But even a lone flyerer can make a huge difference. One supporter proudly reported putting flyers on each car in his local Wal-Mart parking lot.
We have a number of flyers already created for you to use.
- Business Cards Download this new business card where you can insert the stations and times where DN! airs in YOUR community. Keep the cards in your wallet or bag and hand them out!
- Half Sheet Flyer This 4″×5.5″ flier is great for letting people know where and when to listen and watch DN! in your community, and for letting people know about upcoming events. Insert your own local station information.
- Tearoffs Sheet Change this flyer so people can quickly and easily tear off contact information to join a campaign to bring DN! to their community or find out how to watch/listen to DN! in their area. Post it on bulletin boards around your community.
If you create your own flyer download one of our logos to add to it. If you want to share the flyer with us, we’d love to include it on our website for others to use. Make sure it is saved in a format that would allow others to change the text.
