Anonymous for the Voiceless's Cube of Truth is a peaceful static demonstration akin to an art performance. This demonstration operates in a structured manner that triggers curiosity and interest from the public; AV attempts 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. Two cubes will take place this week. The first will be Thursday at Union Square in NYC and the second will be in Haddonfield in Camden County on Sunday. 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 volunteers should join this Facebook group for NYC and this group for Camden County.

Enjoy a Saturday evening of holiday + classical music in Brooklyn with pianist David Malinowski. All proceeds will go to the Animal Liberation NYC Conference, taking place from April 9th - 13th, 2020. There is a suggested donation of $20 and light refreshments will be served.

Finally, the Jersey Shore chapter of Food Not Bombs will be feeding those in need at the Asbury Park Train Station between 3:00 and 4:00. If you want to donate something, contact them via their Facebook page or by emailing them at The Jersey City chapter meets at the Journal Square plaza at noon every Sunday. For donations, contact them via their Facebook page or at
