RSVP: Vegetarian Advocacy - what can we do? - Red Vic Peace Center, Height, SF - 04/03/05




Original Event Notes:

Yes, this is Daylight Savings Time! Today at 2 am, "spring" forward an hour.

Bay Area Vegetarians already has several advocacy events, such as monthly letter writing parties, KFC protests, tabling & outreach and other special events like screenings and speakers. But we think there is a need for an event series that would also connect & support the advocacy community and provide a regular opportunity for us to network and organize, as well as host educational events for the general community. Topics and speakers could range from educational to inspirational to practical how-to/hands-on sessions.

With Erik Marcus' recent presentation on MEAT MARKET, we'd like to propose that we gather to discuss different "dismantlement" or advocacy strategies to promote vegetarianism, as outlined by Erik Marcus in MEAT MARKET. Note: This is not a review of the book, or philosophical discussion of strategies, but a practical discussion of what we can do as an organization, as individuals, as a community to promote vegetarianism and reduce animal suffering, using the strategies outlined in Meat Market as a basis and/or starting point for the discussion.
