Direct Action Everywhere (DxE) is a grassroots animal liberation group that seeks to challenge speciesist culture and end the slaughter of animals in the US. We take a historically informed approach to our activism and are inspired by others who took nonviolent direct action, from abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison to civil rights advocate Martin Luther King Jr. to AIDS activist Bob Rafsky. Above all, we dream big: animal liberation is possible and will happen with our effort. Only a few months old, we're growing exponentially and are already making waves. We'd love to have you join us.Added to the calendar on Wednesday Jul 31st, 2013 7:09 PM
On Saturday June 6, we'll be gathering for an open meeting. We'll discuss our organizing principles, welcome those new to the group/movement, and have a discussion on improving our activism. One of the items for this meeting is to look at some of the activism done by Animal Equality, a European group that is taking off (and recently visited us in the Bay Area). Finally, we'll chat and screw around as we always do.
