Event Description: Hey everyone,
We have an exciting dinner and outreach event coming up, Sunday, August 19th. In solidarity with FARM (www.farmusa.org), we are gearing the next Promenade outreach towards educating people about the impressive effects that a plant-based diet has on reducing one's personal contribution to global warming. How many meat-eating people do you know who don't realize that a vegan driving a Hummer contributes far less to greenhouse gas emissions than an omnivore riding a bike?!?! Have them check out http://www.coolyourdiet.com/
for lots of cool facts on how being vegan helps the planet.
We'll meet for dinner at 6:15 ish at Real Food Daily (RFD) in Santa Monica. There are lots of new members and I'm really looking forward to meeting y'all and having some good conversation and activism happen, so let's have a good turn-out, k? ;)
After dinner, we'll head over to the Third Street Promenade (between Broadway and Santa Monica Blvd.) for the video outreach from 8-10 pm. As usual, Aouie will have the video projection set-up and we'll be showing Meet Your Meat along with other vegetarianism related films and passing out literature. I've ordered an Event Pack from FARM for Bite Global Warming Day which includes some posters and cards.
If you are new to leafletting or have questions, please email me or refer to previous announcements for tips on leafletting.
Please RSVP and in the comment section mention if you're planning on attending dinner, outreach or both (this helps with making the reservation at RFD)!
Also, thanks to everyone who's filled out your profile questions. If you haven't yet done so, if you would be so kind as to take a moment and get that done, I'd be most appreciative :P And you may find some useful links on the About Us section of the site, too!
Hope to see you on Sunday, August 19th! Let's BITE GLOBAL WARMING!!
