Happy New Year! I hope 2010 is a year of good health, prosperity and peace for you.
A couple of things -
Anyone have an idea for a meetup venue? The best place for us is a restaurant that serves alcohol, can make at least a few vegan items, and has a separate meeting area where our group (typically 30 - 50 attendees) can mingle as if at a cocktail party before sitting down to eat. This time of year, the separate meeting area probably needs to be indoors. Anywhere in OC could work.
Anyone want to be an assistant organizer? This does not involve a huge time commitment - it only takes an hour or two to plan and post a meetup event.
Animal Protection and Rescue Leagueis a grassroots 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization which works to document and expose animal cruelty occurring behind closed doors, educates the public on animals issues through innovative outreach campaigns, and works with policymakers and politicians to implement humane change.
Since forming in 2003, APRL has garnered the attention of national and international media, influenced animal protection legislation, conducted numerous rescues of abused factory farmed animals, influenced cities to adopt humane solutions to wildlife management, and created a network of grassroots outreach volunteers.
Please join us for regular events like potlucks, speakers, film screenings, dining events, outreach and protests. For more information, please visit our website at www.aprl-socal.org
