After a busy few weeks for vegan events in NJ, we are beginning to slow down as school starts and summer comes to an end. Now the weekends become packed and the weekdays are empty!
Newark Animal Save (a chapter of the Animal Save Movement) is having a vigil and outreach at American Halal in Newark on Thursday morning with Ethically Elizabeth.
This Saturday, Broome Animal Sanctuary is hosting a Vegan Festival at the Town of Broome Fire Department in Livingstonville, NY. There will be tours of the sanctuary, yoga, food, skincare, and more! Some NJ favorite vendors will be there, such as Rockin' Raw, Gone Pie, and Fanciful Fox!
Also on Saturday, at Freshii in Flemington is a lunch hosted by NJveg, formerly the Vegetarian Society of NJ. NJveg is a centrally located social group that specializes in vegan advocacy. You can view a list of all of their events and get more information about this lunch (and their outreach event at the Red Bank Street Fair on Sunday) on their events page.
Every Sunday, the Jersey Shore chapter of Food Not Bombs will be feeding those in need at the Asbury Park Train Station between 4:00 and 5:00. If you want to donate something, contact them via their Facebook page or by emailing them at email@example.com.
The North Jersey chapters of Anonymous for the Voiceless are hosting an outreach workshop in Butler, NJ on Sunday to answer any questions those interested might have about doing outreach or participating in their events. This is a great way to meet new activists and pick their brains to help you become more confident in your activism. You can join the groups for the New Brunswick and Jersey City chapters to keep up to date with their events and learn more.
Plants for Peace is hosting a potluck at Monmouth University at 1pm in the Magill Commons Club. You must RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org, bring a vegan dish (with a list of ingredients) and your own plates/utensils. Plants for Peace is an organization that puts on a lot of events and potlucks at Monmouth University, so make sure to keep up with their Facebook page to stay in the know!
