NOTE: Our Calendar of Events includes events organized by Peoria Area Voices for Animals (marked with an asterisk*) as well as events organized by other groups and individuals. If you or your organization has animal rights, anti-speciesism, or vegan events that you would like listed on our calendar, please contact us.
*** Feel free to contact usfor directions or more information on any of our events, or to receive our newsletter.
We have monthly vegan potlucks (usually held the last Saturday of each month from 6-10 pm) where we socialize, share information, and get to sample lots of delicious food. Our potlucks are held to provide social support, encouragement, and advice for those interested in or already living a vegan (anti-speciesist) lifestyle. There is no charge to attend but donations for our annual fundraising efforts are encouraged and greatly appreciated.
We also hold demonstrations and protests to oppose speciesism, promote veganism, and educate the public about the violence inherent in all practices and industries that use our fellow animals. Signs are always provided or you can bring your own if you prefer. We also do vegan education and outreach in the form of leafleting, tabling, pay per view video outreach, and food sampling. Anyone who agrees that our fellow animals are here with us rather than for us and who shares our vision for a non-speciesist world where all animals are free from human exploitation is welcome to join us or volunteer at any of our events.
For more information on our potlucks, demonstrations, and outreach events, please e-mail us or call Monica at 691-5328.
