This Week in NJ
** Our next Vounteer Day at Skylands Animal Sanctuary will be this Friday, 12/27. The volunteer list is full as of this writing, but if you'd like to get on the waiting list, please check out the event page (please note you must be a member of the Facebook group to view). Keep an eye out for future dates on this events blog, the Facebook Group, and the website! **
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 email@example.com. The Jersey City chapter meets at the Journal Square plaza at noon every Sunday. For donations, contact them via their Facebook page or at firstname.lastname@example.org.

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 Cherise at email@example.com and I'll add it to the page ASAP and include it in our weekly breakdown.
We have a Patreon page and would love it if you could donate any amount you could. You will get access to our feed, where we will be working through ideas and events we plan to host in the future, early blog posts, discount codes for events, and random merch an whatever we've got that we can send you! This will be a great place for you to have your voice heard about how we can make NJ the most vegan friendly place it can be. Proceeds from our Patreon will be going to maintain the website, brand, and afford us to be able to hire on more awesome vegans to help us on our journey to make NJ a vegan wonderland! We also take some of the donations and donate it back to various vegan non-profits and NJ sanctuaries.
We have also added a 'support us' page, so if you want other ways (besides Patreon) to help us out, please check there. We appreciate anything you can do!
