Location is Crepe and Spoon, 339 22nd Ave NE in Minneapolis. Crepe and Spoon is opening early for this Meetup, so we'll be the only ones there. RSVP at Vean Meetup: https://www.meetup.com/vegan-415/

Please join us for a volunteer meeting and Cuddle Coats prep session followed by delicious vegan pizza from Galactic Pizza. We will be prepping donated fur coats and accessories for shipment to wildlife rehabilitation centers. This means removing all buttons, zippers etc, so feel free to bring a pair of sharp scissors or seam ripper of your own, although we have several for people to use. Some people like to bring a lint roller for getting fur off their clothes at the end. This is a great opportunity for teens and mature kids to help out, too, and is a low-key, low-commitment way to volunteer for a little bit and meet some of the other people in the group, while doing something concrete to save lives. (Must help prep if you plan to enjoy pizza.) Location is the ARC office, co-located with Ethique Nouveau, at 317 W 48th St. in Minneapolis from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. RSVP at Animal Rights Meetup: https://www.meetup.com/Minnesota-Animal-Rights-Meetup/

Best Voice for Animals
at 6:00 pm
2019-02-26 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.
