Event Description

DxE has had an on-going campaign against Smithfield. We often focus on our actions and what humans in the movement are doing, but we don't often hear about the nonhuman animals who we are fighting for. Join us to learn more about the individuals rescued from Smithfield and how their lives have been forever changed.

Shelter-in-place won't stop us from being together as a community! We have weekly Meetups because it's extremely valuable for us regularly interact, even if we can't do so in person. Connecting with fellow activists strengthens out friendships, animal rights community, and the entire movement, which makes us better able to fight for animal liberation! The more we know and trust one another, the more resistant our community is to infiltration and in-fighting. It's also important for our own personal mental health to feel connected and support during these hard times.
Every Saturday at 11am we have Meetups for everyone and anyone who cares about animals and making the world a better place!
