  • This location is shown only to members

We will celebrate The 2nd National Animal Rights Day (NARD2) this year on June 3, from 12 noon - 5 pm, at the North side of Union Square, NYC.

This year the event will include:
12:00 noon: A silent ceremony to commemorate the billions of animals who loose their lives every year, by the hand of humanity, including signing the 20-foot long Declaration of Animal Rights!
12:30-1:30: A free, open-to-all, yoga class led by the renown Jivamukti Yoga teachers Jessica Sage Stickler and Dechen Thurman. Incorporating asana, meditation and text, it will focus on generating compassion for all beings - humans, animals, and the planet itself!
1:30-5:00: Live music, drum circle, street theatre, Capoeira, face painting, and yummy free vegan food, of course!

Come join us at the square! we will start gathering there at 11:30 am, and start the ceremony at 12:00 noon sharp, so please be early! Bring comfortable clothes for toga, a yoga mat if you have one (we will have some as back up), a musical instrument, and your animal-loving spirit!

Please let us know that you're coming on Facebook:

    It was a very successful event, thanks to everyone who came! with our moving opening ceremony, signing the Declaration of Animal Rights, yoga class, vegan food and festival of music and performances, we managed to engage many "non-AR" and "non-veg" people in inquiries, conversations, and opening themselves to reconsider the issues of eating and using animals. again, thanks to this great community of activists, for making it happen!

    I got there at 3 so I missed most of the event, but I enjoyed the rest.

    I LIKED SO MUCH FOR BEING IN THAT MEETING. IT WAS A NEW EXPERIENCE FOR ME, AND I CAN SAY THAT IT WAS REVITALIZING.

    hi everyone, we changed the format of the opening ceremony a bit, so black clothes are not necessary, but still appropriate. but bring something comfortable for yoga! please come BEFORE 12:00, as we want to start at 12:00 noon sharp! thanks!
