Love animals?

Every Saturday at 11am we have Meetups for everyone and anyone who cares about animals and making the world a better place! ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿท๐Ÿ”๐Ÿญ
At this week's meeting we will be discussing the legal case for animals rights, the right to rescue, and animal rights legislation.

At this week's meeting we will be discussing the legal case for animals rights, the right to rescue, and animal rights legislation.
We will be serving an all vegan make-your-own parfait + bagels with cream cheese and jelly (by suggested donation) starting at 11am. At 11:30 we begin a brief 15-minute presentation on updates from the animal rights community and a special weekly topic followed by a quick Q&A.

Then we transition to a group activity, work party or strategy session where you can offer some much-needed help or talk with organizers to find out how you can help DxE SF Bay achieve its 2019 goals of maximizing mobilization, open rescue and legislative change.

Together, we will change the world for animals - starting right NOW!
