Are you inspired by the amazing things you saw or took part in at #ALC2018?
Well, then this is an opportunity you won't want to miss: an orientation for people who want to get more involved in this transformative, life-saving work.
You could be leading a team at our next #MassOpenRescue, joining a dinner with Pulitzer Prize winner Glenn Greenwald, and helping us push forward on an animal bill of rights.
There will be TWO orientations, and both are the same (so you only need to come to one!)

WHERE: Berkeley Animal Rights Center
WHO: All who are interested in taking action for animals!
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 http://dxecodeofconduct.wikispaces.com/Code+of+Conduct.
To learn about our vision, goals, strategy and more check out the San Francisco Bay Area chapter Activist Handbook here: https://dxe.io/sfbayhandbook
LOCATION/DIRECTIONS: Most of our events are held at the Berkeley Animal Rights Center located in Suite C at 2425 Channing Way. If taking BART, get off at Downtown Berkeley station, walk south on Shattuck Ave (for 5 blocks), make a left on Channing Way, and walk another 5 blocks until you see the big red pillars - you’re here! We strive to offer walking buddies to attendees who feel unsafe walking to/from BART or other short distances in the area - please email us at sfbay [at] directactioneverywhere.com to request a walking buddy.
PARKING: There is a parking garage at the center (free for the first hour) and metered street parking in the vicinity. Please remove all valuables from your car.
ACCESSIBILITY: The Berkeley Animal Rights Center has stair-free access from Channing Way. The front doors of the center open to 5ft wide. The bathroom entrance is 34” wide, and there is one accessible stall with horizontal grab bars on the right and back of the toilet. The toilet is 18” high.
