Volunteers needed to staff the Vegetarian Society of DC (VSDC) table at the Animal Rights 2013 National Conference! An excellent opportunity to promote VSDC and the benefits of vegetarianism. The conference is hosted by Farm Animal Rights Movement (FARM) and is a "whos-who" of animal activists and a great opportunity to meet like-minded people, shop for vegan goods in the exhibit hall, and learn about animal-friendly businesses and non-profits.
