February Membership Meeting

We'll be discussing the upcoming Ringling Brothers circus demos & effective leafleting techniques, and hopefully working on mounting some posters I ordered from circusprotest.com/Vistaprint!

There will also be updates on bear baiting.

Please bring any suggestions you have for pre-circus outreach events, venues for documentary showings and films.

Also, please let me know your suggestions for alternative group meeting places. Restaurants with rooms to reserve, that sort of thing. It's good to have back-ups.

Columbia Veg is planning a joint vegan potluck with the Unitarian Universalist Animal Ministry group for February 24th! We hope to demonstrate to the congregation how tasty vegan food can be. We'll also have leaflets and information available.

More details coming soon, but please mark your calendar and think about what you might like to bring (bringing food is optional, but please do if you can- we may have a lot of hungry people at this one!)

    And this is a biggie. All day next Saturday:

    Progressive Network Organizing Conference Saturday, February 23, 2013

    Brookland Baptist Fellowship Hall 1066 Sunset Blvd., West Columbia

    The SC Progressive Network and the SC Legislative Black Caucus have partnered for a day-long training for social and political activists from across the state.

    The conference will address the challenges and opportunities posed by the increasingly conservative leadership that believes government is the problem, and whose ideology is threatening health care, education and the environment in South Carolina.

    RSVP for lunch ($10) at[masked] or [masked].

    There are 2 events this week that might be good education for us in getting our causes out to more people. Or maybe we already have experts on this topic. Since I am new I don't know who you have on board. This is one:

    Media Advocacy Workshop with emphasis on Israel/Palestine.
    Useful to any field of advocacy.
    Precedes Michael Brown's talk "Report Back from Gaza" at 6PM.

    Absolutely no relevance, but I could not keep this to myself. Out of TN, on a request for rescue: "OKAY THIS IS IGNORANT..I JUST HAD TO SAY IT....but read this....and you may say the same thing...
    This guy was signed over to RC, not bc he's mean or bc he tear...s things up, but because... His owner says he's gay! He hunched another male dog so his owner threw him away bc he refuses to have a "gay" dog!"

    The meetup Sustainable Suburbia has several people interested in vegan lifestyle and home gardening. May be some overlap.

    I've switched the day of this meeting to the 7th so we can meet at the library again. If anyone has other suggestions for future meeting venues- please let me know.
