From the DxE Forum (https://goo.gl/vUkZJQ) to the Animal Rights Conference (https://goo.gl/GkkE0Q), some of the most powerful demonstrations in DxE’s history have happened when activists came together and took collective action. Large, powerful protests unite us, inspire us, and demonstrate the strength and commitment of our movement. --- MODEL ACTION Find the busiest place in your city and disrupt! It could be a shopping mall, a public space, a festival, or any other location where a large number of people are gathered. More details coming soon! We are highly encouraging each region to plan a community event (potluck, meetup, sanctuary trip, etc...) in addition to the action. Use this opportunity to create stronger bonds with the activists in your region! --- THE CAMPAIGN DxE’s organizers around the world build empowered networks for animal liberation. Based on the most innovative scholarship on social change and the recent successes of the animal rights movement in countries around the world, DxE’s model focuses on building the kindling for a true social movement to be set ablaze. We do this by: (1) supporting activists locally in speaking strongly for animals under our organizing principles (http://directactioneverywhere.com/organizing-principles/); and (2) connecting those activists with others worldwide to create empowered networks for change. Animal rights activists in over 134 cities and 27 countries have united under the banner "It's not Food. It's Violence" since our campaign started in October 2013. But we need your help to keep up the momentum. Join us this month as we demand an end to atrocities against innocent animals.
