Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day, is a hugely important holiday that some people may not know a whole lot about! The holiday is a celebration of the end of slavery in "Confederate states". As activists we must educate ourselves and be in solidarity! That's why at this Meetup we will be learning more about the history and significance of Juneteenth!

Zoom link: dxe.io/meetupzoom

Every Saturday at 11am we have Meetups for everyone and anyone who cares about animals and making the world a better place! 🌍🐮🐷🐔🐭🦊🐠

We have weekly Meetups because it's extremely valuable for us regularly interact, even if we can't do so in person. Connecting with fellow activists strengthens out friendships, animal rights community, and the entire movement, which makes us better able to fight for animal liberation! The more we know and trust one another, the more resistant our community is to infiltration and in-fighting. It's also important for our own personal mental health to feel connected and support during these hard times.
