What we're about

Animal Protection and Rescue League is 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 http://www.aprl-socal.org

Vegan Meditation

Link visible for attendees

Please join us online for a peaceful, free half-hour of vegan-oriented meditation and mindful sharing. We’ll meditate together in silence for 15 minutes, then share brief thoughts on a vegan or mindfulness-related topic. Talking during the second half is optional, but we do ask that all participants keep their video cameras on throughout the session to reduce trolling. Please be sure you have Zoom installed and working properly before attending.

PLEASE NOTE: to discourage trolling, the Zoom link is not posted publicly but will be provided privately to you twice: first, in a pop-up window immediately after you RSVP, and second, in a reminder email you'll receive the day of the event. Please ensure your Meetup notification settings are turned on so you can receive this reminder email, and remember to calendar the event and Zoom link somewhere you can readily find them.

ALSO NOTE: as a further anti-trolling measure, to enter the meeting you must first have signed into your Zoom account. If you don't have a Zoom account, you can establish one for free at zoom.us.

FINAL NOTE: the meditation will begin promptly, so please arrive on time. When you arrive in the meeting, you may see a meditation timer already counting down from 15 minutes - this is your cue to join and begin meditating. No prior experience with meditation is necessary.

Hope to see you soon!

Spirituality for Animal Advocates and Vegans

Amidst the global suffering of a worldwide pandemic, environmental ecocide, and industrialized abuse of animals, there comes a call for compassionate action. The Compassion Consortium is a spiritual community created to serve the needs of vegans, vegetarians, animal rights activists, and others who care about and advocate for animals and the planet.

The non-sectarian monthly service features interfaith reflection, music, meditation, and a conversation with a special guest. It's open to all sentient beings of any spiritual tradition.

The program is monthly on the fourth Sunday of each month at 1 pm Pacific / 4 pm Eastern. Attendance at Compassion Consortium events is always free of charge, but registration is required: https://www.compassionconsortium.org/sunday-service. Hope you can make it.
