Berkeley Animal Rights Center
2425 Channing Way, Berkeley, California 94704
This week we will have a meetup workshop! It will consist of an interactive and engaging workshop on how to do different protest roles.
The protests we organize have gotten international attention and are literally disrupting speciesism, so come out to the meetup and learn how to you can be a part of the action.
More details to be posted soon.
Join us every Saturday at 11:00 AM for freshly brewed coffee, delicious vegan doughnuts, and an amazing community! Social justice movements have always started with community, from the Quaker church to the more recent rise of LGBT community centers. As animal rights activists, we too need a space for training, support, and encouragement. So come join us!
Also If it's your birthday this week, PLEASE message Kitty Jones (facebook.com/meatisjustmean) and let her know so we can acknowledge you! :)
