Protests, Petitions & Pleas, Oh My!

Lots of people are working hard to save our soaps! It's amazing really how people have mobilized with petitions, blogs, advertisements in The Hollywood Reporter, press releases, etc. We can't all be everywhere doing everything, so do what you can. May 17 is Upfronts Day for ABC when advertisers view ABC's fall lineup & commit to upfront sponsorships. A protest is planned to take place while advertisers arrive for the ABC meetings. Be part of the Rally alongside other fans, sponsors, media, union members and maybe stars. If you can't make it to the protest, look for the photos tweeted during the day. Retweet them and send them to your local ABC affiliate with a letter requesting renewal of AMC & OLTL. For more details about the planned protest at Lincoln Center, check out www.soapfansunited.com. Hoover pulled it's ads, now we're working with Hershey to show similar support. Here's a petition where you can send Hershey your thoughts.
