Tabling to gain visibility and support for the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and our local partners is an important grassroots activity that can recruit additional strong volunteers, gather more signatures for our on-going petition to Congress, attract media and apply needed pressure on legislative and market targets.
If you’ve ever been to a community health fair or a local outdoor festival with tables with information on an organization (e.g. the local PTA) or a grassroots action (“please sign this petition to end greyhound racing!”), then you’ve seen tabling in action. Tabling is a great organizing method; people can approach you to talk learn more about the issue, take some literature, sign up for e-mails and take action.
You can either plug into an existing event (a community health fair, an Earth Day festival, etc.) or approach a local establishment (a church, a health food store, etc.) to table on your own.
Sound interesting? Great! We have a primer on tabling, complete with tips, checklists, talking points and more. Download tabling PDF.
