A Bit more Activism

In todays culture we are constantly inundated with images that are detrimental to our soul. Sadly much of it can not be avoided, especially at check out lines. I'm sure y'all know what I mean. For a little while now, my friends and I have been working on pressuring our local Kroger grocery stores to remove the more sexually oriented magazines from the check out lines and place them in the main magazine aisle. What we recently found out is the person in Roanoke who is responsible for Consumer Affairs is also responsible for consumer affairs in the entire Mid-Atlantic Region. The Mid-Atlantic Region covers Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio, North Carolina, and Kentucky. What we really need is for people in all these states to contact:

Lynda Powers
Mid-Atlantic Consumer Affairs
Phone (540) 563-3662
FAX (540) 265-3896

and let her know that you would like to see this occur. We are also working on a number of other ways to pressure Kroger, and if you would like to help in these ways, please contact our ringleader, Stephen, at
