This Week in NJ

If you are hosting an event or know of an event happening that you do not see on our events page, please send an email to and I'll add it to the page ASAP and include it in my weekly breakdown.

Thursday morning, Newark Animal Save is hosting a vigil and outreach at American Halal Meats in Newark. This will be part of the #WakeUpWorld week, which is encouraging all vegan activists to bring one non-vegan with them to bear witness at a local vigil.

On Thursday, Hip Hop is Green (NJ chapter) is hosting a family cookout fundraiser in Newark at the awesome vegan restaurants, The Zucchini Bar and Blueberry Cafe, which are by the same owners, so you can expect amazing food from both! You can find more information about Hip Hop is Green NJ events by keeping up with them on Facebook and Instagram.

On Friday, the NYC chapter of Anonymous for the Voiceless is hosting a Cube of Truth in Washington Square Park.

On Saturday, The Vegetarian Society of South Jersey is hosting a vegan potluck in Historic Smithville Park. They host quite a few events in Southern NJ. Keep up with them via their Facebook page!

Also on Saturday is The Official Animal Rights March of 2018 in NYC. There are several march locations, all happening on different days, with some great speakers and of course, the march! Draw up your best signs, wear your loudest vegan t-shirt and march alongside of like-minded activists while the crowd grabs the attention of bystanders that try and get a glimpse of what's happening. You can see the other locations of marches and shop their ethically made t-shirts on their website.

Saturday is the second of the month, which means Animals First on the Second is upon us again. If you've never heard of this, that's okay, now is a great time to start! We fast on the second of every month, mark an "x" inside a circle on our hands and the conversations will come to you. Learn more about what this all is and why this was started on the AFOTS website, including information on how to get started and participate.
