Berkeley Animal Rights Center
2425 Channing Way, Berkeley, California 94704
This week's meetup will be short on lecture and heavy on helping!:) After usual introductions and updates, we'll switch to work party mode and do things to help others, ourselves and, in-turn, animals! We'll write support letters to send to jailed activists, make sandwiches to share with folx who are hungry at nearby People's Park, prep for some upcoming actions and more! Come hang out, have fun and volunteer!
As always we will have fresh, hot coffee and pastries baked with love for everyone! Come get some!
Direct Action Everywhere (DxE) is a grassroots network of animal rights activists. Through open rescue, demonstration, and disruption, we are creating a world where every animal is safe, happy and free.
DxE cultivates a welcoming and supportive community. We ask that all those who attend our events (online and offline) respect our Code of Conduct which can be reviewed at dxecodeofconduct.wikispaces.com/Code+of+Conduct.
