Come hang out with us and eat a ton of yummy vegan food! You’ll be able to pick up VegCap dining guides, Not in My Neighborhood lists of local animal abusing businesses and ADK-AR shirts, hang out with friends and hopefully make some new ones!

We always have a blast, so mark your calendars and be sure to save room so you can buy some of Sarah’s awesome X’s to O’s vegan treats after dinner!

Northeast Animal Liberation Festival
Saturday, May 7th
6:00PM
Sanctuary for Independent Media
3361 6th Ave, Troy
RSVP on Facebook!

“My name is Charlie Cranehill. You’ll read about me in the news. See pictures of me with the word ‘terrorist’ after my name.”

Join Adirondack Animal Rights for our first Northeast Animal Liberation Festival, with a vegan BBQ potluck and screening of Bold Native, the first full-length feature film about the animal liberation movement. Panel discussion and Q&A to follow with Jenny Brown of Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary, and Camille Hankins of Win Animal Rights and No Kill New York.

Bold Native is a fiction feature film. Charlie Cranehill, an animal liberator wanted by the United States government for domestic terrorism, emerges from the underground to coordinate a nationwide action as his estranged CEO father tries to find him before the FBI does. The film simultaneously follows a young woman who works for an animal welfare organization fighting within the system to establish more humane treatment of farmed animals. From abolitionists to welfarists, Bold Native takes on the issue of modern animal use and exploitation from several angles within the context of a road movie adventure story.

****Unlike our usual ADK-AR potlucks, additional food will be provided so a dish is not mandatory (but will get you a discounted door rate). As usual, dishes must be 100% vegan (no meat, dairy, eggs, gelatin, honey, etc).

$10 suggested donation/ $5 student/low income
