Catching up.

Our movie night fundraiser was a lot of fun last week!  We had vegan pizza from DeFazio’s Pizzeria and it was amazingly delicious.  Can’t wait to have more!

Tomorrow is our monthly potluck at X’s to O’s: Saturday, 3/26 @ 5:30PM, 97 4th

Street, Troy.  As always, please bring a vegan dish to share as well as your own drink and place setting. This is not only a vegan event, but it is also hosted in a vegan facility. If you’re unsure what ingredients are vegan please feel free to ask us.  You can RSVP on Facebook or Meetup.

We’re still raising money for the Northeast Animal Liberation Festival on May 7th.  There is now a Paypal Donate button on the right hand side of our website and you can always buy ADK-AR shirts at all of our events.  We hope to have shirts as well as our chili cookzine up on the website for sale soon.

We’ve stocked X’s to O’s literature section with circus cruelty handouts.  Ringling Bros will be in Albany in May, but it’s important to reach out to people before they purchase their tickets.  Please consider picking up some of the literature and handing it out around your town.  Thank you in advance!

We’re putting the final touches on an exciting event that will be announced in the next few days.  Keep Wednesday evening, April 13th open and check back soon for details!

Volunteers and College Students Needed

We need your help to gather more supporters and effectively share our message in the area.

Any big event such as a concert or sporting event, college campuses and busy areas of town are great opportunities for leafletting.  Handing out literature is really easy, especially if you enjoy interacting with others, and can make a big impact.  It’s true that some people will not even consider the information you’re giving them, however others will take that information home and really think about it and even make changes in their own lives.  The moral of the story is that you never know just how big of an impact you’re making.

If you’re interested in leafletting at local events/areas, email us at adkanimalrights@gmail.com.  We’ll provide literature if we can.  Contact us with any events and locations you think need our attention as well.

We’d also like to build up a base of volunteers at local college campuses to recruit supporters and publicize our events.  If you’re interested email us with your contact information and the name of the college you attend.
