Animal liberation group Direct Action Everywhere (DxE) will be stopping by Seattle on their West Coast tour this July. The first day the organizers from the East Bay Area chapter of DxE will speak about the origins of the network, its organizing principles and its current campaigns. This will also be a place for discussion, where we will trade ideas and hear about the struggles and campaigns that Seattle is involved with.
The second day of their tour will be a day of action, where they will collectively plan and implement actions at different locations across the city with those who want to get involved based on what they learned during the first day.
The purpose of the tour is to strengthen the network and relationships with activist communities through face-to-face interaction. As part of the “network” in NARN, we are excited to learn from activists doing new things and figure what can be applied in Seattle.
Please join DxE, NARN, and your local animal liberation community for this event before you head out for any giant vegan BBQ potlucks. This will be a great way to really kick off the Seattle summer! If you are unsure about DxE, anti-corporate activism, civil disobedience, humane myth-busting, or any part of their campaign, this is a great time to learn more. Free of course!
If you’re interested in expanding your reach and making a bigger impact for animals, come to Animal Activism 301. You don’t have to have attended the first two sessions to benefit from this one.
The focus of this session is avoiding burnout and staying sane!
We’ll continue our discussion of how to be an effective activist. How do animal rights activists bear the things we know? Stress impacts us all, but with the right physical and emotional self-care we can remain committed, useful advocates.
