WASHINGTON, June 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey will lead the Green Our Vaccines march, rally and hold a press conference today, Wednesday June, 4th at the Capitol Building, West Capitol Grounds in Washington, DC.
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. will be joining Carrey and McCarthy as the keynote speaker.
"We have been inspired by Mr. Kennedy's support of mothers' positions on vaccines and his ground breaking article, "Deadly Immunity," McCarthy says. "His continued efforts are greatly appreciated."
The event is organized by Talk About Curing Autism (TACA), Generation Rescue, Healing Every Autistic Life, and Moms Against Mercury. Families from every state across the U.S. are already committed to marching for safe vaccines and the numbers keep growing. The speaker line up will also include: Jim Carrey, Dr. Jay Gordon, Dr. Boyd Hayley and Jenny McCarthy.
"Having Senator Kennedy as part of the supporters for the Green Our Vaccines Rally is an honor," says Lisa Ackerman, Executive Director of TACA. "His support for families affected by Autism has been an important part of our movement."
Participants will gather at 9 am at the Washington Monument with a one-mile march to the West Capitol Grounds. The March will promptly begin at 10 am with a Press Conference immediately following.
McCarthy, author of the best-selling book Louder Than Words: A Mother's Journey in Healing Autism, and Carrey have joined forces with national advocacy organizations in the battle to eliminate toxins from children's vaccines and to encourage national health agencies to reassess mandatory vaccine schedules. While they do support immunization, like many parents and experts in the medical community, McCarthy, Carrey and their many allies feel that children are receiving too many vaccines, too soon, many of which are toxic. Their goal is to demand a safer vaccine supply and schedule for children.
Sponsors & volunteers of the rally include: Generation Rescue, Healing Every Autistic Life, Moms Against Mercury & TACA. Over 39 other autism and environmental groups have signed on showing their support for the Green our Vaccines march & rally.
