Pay Per View at Augsburg at 10:00 am
We will be doing Virtual Reality Pay Per View outreach and vegan food sampling at Augsburg University in Minneapolis, MN today from 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. 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

Protest Four Paws and a Tail at 1:00 pm
Note: This is an ongoing event EVERY Sunday from 1-2 pm!

Meet us at the intersection of County Road 10 and Jefferson, on the grassy area in front of Chipotle. Signs are provided but you're welcome to bring your own! We oppose Four Paws and a Tail's business model of buying companion animals from large-scale, commercial breeding facilities and selling them to the public.

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, 8800 Penn Ave. S in Bloomington from 6:00-8:00 p.m. RSVP for this free event at the link below.
