I thought I would share this with everyone! I know a lot of VBers are on the East coast, and they may be interested in this. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
I wish with all of my heart that I could attend, but I will be there in spirit.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">Dear Janelle,<br><br><br><br>
PETA is coming to Philadelphia. On the evening of November 10, we're screening the best animal rights movie ever made. On November 11, we're getting together for a few hours to discuss activism, how we can be more effective, and what each of us can do-even if we're just one person in a small community-to make the world a kinder place. Oh, and of course we'll be serving delicious vegan food!<br><br><br><br>
Friday night event: We'll feature the award-winning documentary Earthlings, narrated by Academy Award nominee Joaquin Phoenix. Powerful, informative, and thought-provoking, Earthlings is by far the most comprehensive documentary ever produced on the interrelatedness of nature, animals, and human economic interests. Please bring your friends and family to watch this life-changing film, which will be followed by a brief presentation and discussion for those who wish to stay.<br><br><br><br>
Saturday afternoon gathering: Join us for food, discussion, and a special training session that will cover topics such as outreach opportunities in your community, how to answer tough questions, and what you can do as one person to make the world a kinder place. Whether you are a novice letter-writer or a seasoned activist, we think you'll find this opportunity to talk with other animal welfare advocates to be fun and interesting, and we hope that you'll find the training to be inspiring and motivational (and we promise that the food will be tasty!). Be sure to sign up soon, as space is limited!<br><br><br><br>
