ARC will be doing Pay-Per-View Tabling at Carlton College in Northfield, MN on Friday, November 8 from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The Pay Per View program is named for the fact that we pay people $1.00 to view a short video about typical practices on animal farms and in slaughterhouses, answer follow-up questions during a debrief conversation with a trained volunteer, and then send people home with information about how changing their eating habits can make a huge difference for animals, the earth, and themselves. If you would like to volunteer for future Pay Per View events, please contact Jenna: Jenna@Animalrightscoalition.com.
|9 Vegan Community Circle at 1:00 pm
Vegan Community Circle discussion on How to Handle the Holidays at Ethique Nouveau, 317 W 48th St. in Minneapolis from 1:00 - 2:30 p.m. The holidays can be one of the toughest times for vegans in terms of balancing relationships with family and friends and our own beliefs. This discussion will center around how to handle the holidays, address issues like attending non-vegan holidays and entertaining family members, and more. This is an opportunity to share your experiences, and give advice to one another. Note: Vegan Community Circle is intended for people who are already vegan. VCC is designed to be a safe space for people who are already vegan to be able to speak freely about their experiences living in a non-vegan world.
