Let Live

Let Live is also looking for feedback on their events from all vegans and PDX folks to help them plan for the future. They were feeling a bit down and demoralized after the "Fowl Play" movie (replacement for "Skin Trade" premiere) and need some props. So help them find the holiday spirit if you can spare a few minutes.
