From the director of United Federation of Teachers, Humane Education Committee, Shiela Schwartz
( :

I'm having a great fun helping people prepare costumes. One friend's twin babies are coming as an apple and a pumpkin. I have another child coming as Minnie Mouse with a sign that says, "I only eat SOY cheese." We are working for a good sized UFT contingent.

... the pro-organic (mostly vegan), world-class triathlete team:

What an exciting idea! Thank you for putting this together! I think our teammates would love to participate in the parade if possible. We could march in our full team uniforms with our bikes or ride our bikes slowly within the parade. The back of our bike shorts already says either "Go Vegan" or "Go Organic" so our costumes would be that of the Vegan\Organic Athletes!
