Announcing a new event for United Animal Advocates of LA!

What: Social Dinner at RFD followed by Outreach on the Santa Monica Promenade

When: Friday, January 11, 6:00 PM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Who should come: Anyone who has a sincere desire to help animals. Come one, come all! The more, the merrier! There are so many new members I still haven't met.

Why: Meet other like-minded people who care about animals, their health, the environment. Enjoy organic vegan cuisine at one of the most popular all-vegan restaurants in town.

Event Description: Hello my fellow animal rights friends,

We are long over-due for a social dinner get-together. There are so many new folks who have joined in the past few months who haven't yet made it to an event. Let's have a good turnout and enjoy wonderful, organic vegan cuisine at RFD while we share our stories and plans for the new year. Please meet in front of RFD (Real Food Daily) at 6 pm SHARP. As you may know, RFD has a policy that the entire party must be present before they will seat you, so it really helps if you can try to be on-time (okay, I know...I'm a hypocrite, BUT at least I try!!) Hopefully we can wrap things up by 7:30 pm and then walk over to the Third Street Promenade for the Outreach from 8-10 pm.

The next opportunity to leaflet on the Santa Monica Promenade with simultaneous video projection going on is Friday, Jan 11th from 8-10 pm. The outreach (leafletting and showing of "Meet Your Meat" and "Earthlings") will take place on the Third Street Promenade between Broadway and Santa Monica Blvd. Look for Aouie with his projector screen and AV equipment. If you are new to leafletting and/or apprehensive about it (which is common but the nervousness fades with practice), please email me for tips or look at the lealetting tips from previous posts. Remember this is a "Friendly Interactions Only" type of event, meaning everyone is expected to be friendly and respectful - including to occasional hecklers passing by. This type of outreach is something anyone can do and has a tremendous positive impact for the animals by raising awareness. I should have enough Vegan Outreach literature, and you are welcome to bring yours as well.

Now that the campaign to get a ballot initiative to ban veal crates, gestation crates, and battery cages in California is upon us, this will also serve as an opportunity for gathering signatures from the public to get the initiative on the November 2008 ballot during the outreach.

***MORE VOLUNTEERS TO GATHER SIGNATURES FOR THIS CAMPAIGN ARE URGENTLY NEEDED IN ORDER TO OBTAIN THE NUMBER OF SIGNATURES NECESSARY TO MAKE THE BALLOT. LESS THAN 7 WEEKS LEFT!!! THEY'VE ALREADY HAD TO START HIRING PAID SIGNATURE GATHERERS, BUT VOLUNTEERS ARE STILL URGENTLY NEEDED. PLEASE DO WHAT YOU CAN TO HELP WITH THIS IMPORTANT TIME-SENSITIVE INITIATIVE!!!***
For info on how to become A VOLUNTEER SIGNATURE GATHERER with this effort, please visit www.humanecalifornia.org.

We're lagging behind on the number of signatures required to make the November 2008 ballot. We really need more people to help gather signatures!! If you've gotten your petitions and info packet, please come on out with your signs, blue or black pens, clipboards, and petitions in hand. The passersby on the Promenade are waiting to sign those petitions! For info on how to become involved with this effort, please visit www.humanecalifornia.org.

***Please RSVP to show your involvement in the group.*** Please indicate in your RSVP if you plan to attend dinner, outreach or both. If we get at least 6 people to RSVP for dinner it makes things easier. Thanks a bunch!!

Hope to see you soon!
Armaiti :)
