Protest the Pet Trade at 11:00 am
Protest the Pet Trade
June 4, 2017 11:00 am
Protest the Pet Trade: Stand Up for Animals Sold by Petland! We oppose Petland\'s business model of buying companion animals from intensive breeding facilities and selling them to the public. We also oppose the idea that because a breeding facility is USDA licensed, it is ethical. At this peaceful and legal protest from 11 am to 1 pm, we will provide signs to all protesters, and protests leads can answer questions from the public. Petland is located in Sun Ray Shopping Center in Saint Paul, MN. Protesters are allowed to walk and park on public property ONLY. The mall lot is private property, so please either find street parking or parking behind the mall lot. Please walk around the mall lot where you will find us on the public easement (the grass) in front of Sunray Shopping Center. Petland St. Paul is located at 2123 Old Hudson Road in St. Paul.

Yoga for Activists
June 8, 2017 7:00 pm
Few things are more selfless than animal rights activism - the work is difficult, never-ending, and, at times, heartbreaking. It’s easy to lose track of your Self while working to end suffering for others, and ignoring your own needs for too long can lead to burnout. ARC invites you to nourish your own body and mind at the four-week series “Yoga For Activists” at Fuller Park, 48th and Grand in Minneapolis. Led by Kris Anne, this practice will provide a safe space for you to explore gentle movement and draw your compassion inward, leaving you feeling refreshed, energized, and ready to continue the fight to end suffering for all. No previous yoga experience? No problem--this series is for all levels, from novice to experienced practitioner! Wear whatever you find comfortable and bring a yoga mat, a towel, and some water. We will make an announcement by 5:30 pm if the class is cancelled due to weather, and we will schedule a make up class. SUGGESTED DONATION: $12 per class. All funds go to the Animal Rights Coalition to support animal advocacy work. RSVP on Vegan Meetup: https://www.meetup.com/vegan-415/events/240027444/
