This week we will be enjoying delicious homemade vegan biscuits & gravy and homestyle potatoes. We will also have fruit and freshly brewed coffee!
We will presenting this week on what is going on in the community and most urgently what we can do to save the baby goat, Rain. Rain was rescued in an Open Rescue. He was suffering from pneumonia and he was going to ultimately be killed. His life could be in danger again but together we can protect him!
Watch the video here to learn more about Rain:
Each Saturday at 10:45am, vegan brunch will be served for a suggested donation before 11:15 when we launch into the weekend with a 15-minute update/presentation followed by a quick Q&A. By 11:40, we'll transition to a work party and strategy session where you can offer some much-needed help or talk with organizers to find out how you can help DxE SF Bay achieve its 2018 goals of maximizing mobilization, open rescue and legislative change.
Together, we will change the world for animals - starting right NOW!
