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:

ARC will be doing Virtual Reality Pay Per View outreach at Augsburg University in Minneapolis 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.

We will also get publicity for our organization by wearing various ARC and vegan tee-shirts. There IS a fundraising requirement of $75 or person, which you can choose to donate on your own, or do a little fundraising by asking friends and family to donate.

As vegans, we know how important veganism is to us, and how strongly we believe in what we are doing. But, we live in a decidedly non-vegan world and that can be tough sometimes. So come and hang out with others who know what it's like. This is an opportunity for us to share our experiences, give support to one another, and talk about the things that can be difficult to explain to people who aren't vegan yet. * NOTE: Vegan Community Circle is intended for people who are already vegan. While most of our meetups are designed to accommodate people who are not yet vegan, VCC is designed to be a safe space for people who are already vegan to be able to speak freely about their experience living in a non-vegan world. Location is Linden Hills Library. 2900 W 43rd St. in Minneapolis. RSVP at Minneapolis Vegan Meetup.

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.
