New Volunteer Orientation
at 6:00 pm
2019-01-02 18:00:00
We have had lots of volunteers join ARC within the last few months and so we want to kick off the new year with a new volunteer orientation. Please join Ashley and Kelsey to learn about our mission, goals, and values. Some of the things we will discuss: what volunteers do at events, how we present our message to the public, how to communicate effectively with the public, how to use our Virtual Reality Headsets, and much more. We will answer all of your questions and share upcoming volunteer opportunities. Location is the ARC office, 317 W 48th St. in Minneapolis (co-located with the vegan boutique Ethique Nouveau). Please RSVP at Animal Rights Meetup: https://www.meetup.com/Minnesota-Animal-Rights-Meetup/

Your Best Voice for Animals

2019-01-29 18:00:00
Join AmyLeo Barankovich, of Vegan Affairs Minnesota, for an interactive, thought-provoking conversation about moving towards being your best voice for the animals. It seems to be human nature to speak “wildly” when our emotions lead the conversation. Being an effective animal advocate requires putting into practice a set of tools that we can access once we are aware of them and know how to best use them. Location is Penn Lake Library from 6:00-8:00 p.m.
