How do we build a strong and powerful movement for Animal Liberation?
By creating activists. By connecting activists. By inspiring activists. Come join DxE Organizers as we talk about how to empower networks of activists all over the world and what DxE has accomplished in the last year. Most importantly, we will be talking about what we all can do in order to unite and continue to grow.
Whether you are a leafleter, an admirer of the ELF, or both, there will be much to learn and discuss. Moreover, there will be insights useful for both seasoned activists and newcomers. Please join us in thinking hard about how to make a better world!
Direct Action Everywhere is an animal rights network working to stop violence and discrimination against animals. Beginning in 2013 in the Bay Area with only a few activists and ambitious ideas, the DxE network has grown exponentially with its flagship campaign, “It’s Not Food, It’s Violence,” reaching 41 cities across 12 countries and generating national news coverage.
DxE works with Animal Liberationists of Color to highlight voices that have been traditionally underrepresented in the animal rights movement and has mobilized activists in cities as far-flung as Chennai, India; Antalya, Turkey; La Paz, Bolivia; and Vancouver, Canada. DxE is strongly committed to building diverse, intersectional movements.
ABOUT THE TOUR
Organizers from the San Francisco/Oakland, Inland Empire, and Los Angeles chapters will be speaking about about the origins of the network, its organizing principles, and its current campaigns. This will also be a place for discussion, where we will trade ideas. We hope to build intersectional activist networks through face-to-face interaction.
THE DUCK CLUB
Access to the Duck Club (on Riparian View) is off of Campus Drive, near University Drive. The Michelson Drive access is no longer viable.
