If we're at all serious about helping ensure a better future for animals, we have to start demanding much more from ourselves than we have previously. We have to dedicate ourselves to effective campaigning. We have to support local grass-roots struggles, both in the streets and with donations. We have to choose our targets strategically, with a mind to bottlenecks. In any case, we need to do more!
Tired of HEARING about animal activism and want to actually DO something? Well, this is the group for you! Every member must participate in an event within 60 days of joining or will be removed from the group (with a chance to rejoin at any time when they are able to participate).

There are many, many opportunities in the Philadelphia area to "meet up" for animals. Ranging from regular demonstrations at local stores that sell animals to frequent outreach events on behalf of the elephants in the Philly Zoo - the only thing missing is YOU! All of our events are peaceful, friendly, and legal. Our goal is to educate, not intimidate.
Note: We love to eat and socialize as much as anyone, but there are many groups in the area already dedicated to dining out, vegan potlucks, parties, etc. Our group is dedicated to increasing participation in various animal campaigns in the region and as such, will focus on events where those interested in helping animals will be able to do so.
