Every Saturday at 11am we have meetups for everyone and anyone who cares about animals and making the world a better place!Added to the calendar on Tuesday Sep 11th, 2018 12:25 PM
We serve a delicious homemade vegan brunch (by suggested donation) starting at 11am. At 11:30 we begin a brief 15-minute presentation on updates from the animal rights community and a special weekly topic followed by a quick Q&A.
Then we transition to a group activity, work party or 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!
