**Don't forget to set your clocks back an hour on Sunday, 11/03!**
If you are in the city on Thursday night and looking for a Veg-Friendly brew-ha-ha, Vegan Drinks is here to save the day! They will be hosting a Halloween version of their event at Solas Bar. They will be fundraising for Voters For Animal Rights - an organization that helps elect candidates who support animal protection, lobbies for laws to stop animal cruelty, and holds elected officials accountable to humane voters. VFAR will receive a portion of all drink sales and 100% of all raffle proceeds. Raffle prizes include gifts from Marty's V Burger, Healthy Vege, and Brooklyn Food & Beverage.
Anonymous for the Voiceless's Cube of Truth is a peaceful static demonstration akin to an art performance. AV will be booked and busy this coming weekend with International Cube Weekend (details below) but they do have one demonstration Wednesday in Brooklyn. These demonstrations operate in a structured manner that triggers curiosity and interest from the public; they attempt to lead bystanders to a vegan conclusion through a combination of local standard-practice animal exploitation footage and conversations with a value-based sales approach. Masks, signs, and outreach literature are provided. Black upper clothing appropriate for the weather is essential, and please bring a fully charged laptop or tablet if you have one. Interested in volunteering for Brooklyn? Join this Facebook group, and for the other demonstrations and FB groups, see below!

On Saturday, please keep Animals First on the Second in mind. This is not an event to attend; rather a monthly day of reflection and remembrance. Each day, millions of farm animals are starved on their way to slaughter. On the second day of every month, fasting is encouraged in protest of the treatment of these sentient beings. Join us as we amplify the voices of the billions of farmed animals suffering around the world. You can find more information about this campaign here.
