What we’re about
If we're at all serious about helping ensure a better future for animals, we have to start demanding much more from ourselves than we have previously. We have to dedicate ourselves to effective campaigning. We have to support local grass-roots struggles, both in the streets and with donations. We have to choose our targets strategically, with a mind to bottlenecks. In any case, we need to do more!
There are many, many opportunities in the Philadelphia area to "meet up" for animals. Ranging from regular demonstrations at local stores that sell animals to frequent outreach events on behalf of the animals confined in the Philly Zoo - the only thing missing is YOU! All of our events are peaceful, friendly, and legal. Our goal is to educate, not intimidate. Join our meetup - it's always free!
Note: We love to eat and socialize as much as anyone, but there are many groups in the area already dedicated to dining out, vegan potlucks, parties, etc. Our group is dedicated to increasing participation in various animal campaigns in the region and as such, will focus on events where those interested in helping animals will be able to do so.

- Outreach and Vegan Food Giveaway at Uhuru Flea Market - OCTOBERClark Park, Philadelphia, PA
IMPORTANT INFORMATION! PLEASE READ TO END!!
We're back this year at Uhuru Flea Market for one of our favorite outreach events to spread the animal liberation message! We will also be giving out free vegan food samples.
All funds raised will be donated to animal sanctuaries. In April's market, we raised $240 for Rancho Relaxo animal sanctuary in South Jersey. In May's market, we raised $150 for Skylands Animal Sanctuary in Wantage NJ, June we donated $150 for Woodstock in High Falls, NY, in August we donated $300 to Indraloka Animal Sanctuary, and in September we donated $311 to Lancaster Farm Sanctuary! And last year we donated $1243.65 total! The donation recipient is chosen by volunteers on the day of the flea market.
PLEASE RSVP HERE IF YOU CAN DEFINITELY COMMIT TO AT LEAST ONE HOUR.
We will set up starting at 8:30 am and sell from our space from 9 am to 4 pm, and packing up from 4 pm to 5 pm. Please include the hours you are committing to in the comments or send an email to email@example.com
PARKING: You can usually find free street parking near the flea market (43rd and Chester) although you may have to walk a block or two.
HOW TO FIND US: Our space is usually on 43rd Street, south of Chester. The spaces are usually marked in chalk along the sidewalk, and ours is around #53. Look for a huge red bowl of water on the sidewalk set out for dogs - that's us! CALL MARIANNE AT 610-733-1248 if you have trouble finding us.
This is a really fun event. In addition to selling items, we have a table with animal liberation information, which has generated some fantastic discussions. A wonderful farmers market is also in Clark Park, right next to where we set up. It's a unique way to spread the message and have fun at the same times.
