Vegan and Animal Rights Advocacy Workshop

Join Farm Sanctuary for their launch of Chicago's Compassionate Communities Campaign!

Come spend the afternoon with us as a Farm Sanctuary representative discusses ways to become a more effective advocate for farm animals and a vegan lifestyle.

The workshop will show you what messages and communication styles are most effective at getting your friends, family, and the public to be more open to veg eating and to compassion for farm animals. It will also discuss how by taking a "bottom line" approach to our animal advocacy, each one of us can spare the lives of literally thousands of farm animals per year. After the workshop, you'll get to interact with other compassionate animal advocates from the Chicago area and strategize with us about how to get active - alone or with others - to promote veg eating.

We hope you'll join us and other compassionate Chicagoans for this free, fun, and valuable workshop!

Please invite all your compassionate friends who might be interested in getting active for farm animals!

This a partnership event with Farm Sanctuary's Compassionate Communities Campaign and Mercy For Animals in Chicago.

    I've never considered myself an activist, nor have I ever done any activism. I'm glad I was able to learn a bit more about it, opening the door to possibilities (foot in the door, from the presentation, remember?)
