Help I'm Going Vegan at 2:00 pm
You want to go vegan or recently made the switch, but you have all these questions. Wouldn't it be nice if you could just ask them all in one sitting and have knowledgeable and caring vegans give straight-forward answers? This free workshop will cover topics ranging nutrition, ethics, and the environment to how to gently explain to grandma that her banana bread isn't vegan... and how to teach her to make it vegan! Location is the Community Room of Boneshaker Books, 2002 23rd Ave. S in Minneapolis from 2:00-4:00 p.m. Feel free to come for as long as you'd like, no need to stay the whole workshop if you have limited time available. Note that his workshop is not designed for people who have been vegan for a long time, so if that's you sit this one out. If you are a longtime vegan and have friends/family/co-workers that would benefit from this workshop please come on down with them! RSVP at Vegan Meetup: https://www.meetup.com/vegan-415/

Pay Per View at Century all day
We will be doing Virtual Reality Pay Per View outreach and vegan food sampling at Century College in White Bear Lake, MN today. Pay Per View is an innovative form of outreach where people are offered $1.00 to view a short 3D film about the lives of animals used for food and then go home with information about how changing to a plant-based diet can make a huge difference for the animals, the earth, and themselves. This is a life-changing experience for many viewers.
Best Voice for Animals at 6:00 pm
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.
