Direct Action Everywhere: Community Building Event - Dallas

Sep 21 2018 - 5:00pm to 7:00pm

We're inviting activists to bring non-active vegans to a meeting where we'll all individually draft emails to companies that profit from animal cruelty (places the DFW AR community is already protesting like Baylor/horse carriages/foie gras restaurants/circuses, etc).

Organizers from different AR groups (Anonynous for the Voiceless, DxE, Dallas Save Movement) will also give a brief presentation/synopsis of what their organization does and how you can get involved for people new to activism.

This is a great event for non-active vegans because it provides a passive introduction into activism while providing information on how to be more involved in the animal rights community!

Once you mark "going,” you’ll be messaged with the location.
