Join us for a film screening of the ground-breaking feature-length film, Dominion, which questions morality and validity of our dominion over the animal kingdom as pets, wildlife, research, entertainment clothing, and food. Filmed in Australia, Dominion combines footage from handheld, hidden, and aerial drone cameras, much of it never seen before, to convey both the terrifying scale of an empire built on secrecy — and the individual stories of its victims. Focusing on the legal, industry-standard practices that occur all over the world, the film questions the morality and validity of humankind’s dominion over the animal kingdom, advocating not for minor improvements to their welfare but for a deeper conversation about our right to exploit those we deem inferior to ourselves.

The End of Meat Film Screening

October 1, 2018

815 N 2nd St
Phoenix, AZ 85004 United States

7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m (Doors open at 6:45 p.m.)

AzVEG is honored to host a film screening of The End of Meat on October 1st at the Filmbar in downtown Phoenix. Although evidence of meat consumption's negative impact on the planet and on human health continues stacking up as animal welfare is on the decline, humanity's love affair with hamburgers, steaks, nuggets, and chops just doesn’t end. In Germany, home of bratwurst and schnitzel, meat is an integral part of the diet. That is, until a few years ago, when perceptions somewhat evolved. Health concerns and meat scandals led to a public debate about the ethical implications of meat consumption and the rise of plant-based diets. Meat producers launched their own vegan products, 100% vegan supermarkets opened, and almost every food manufacturer was adding and labeling vegan options. Is this the beginning of the end of meat? Are we approaching a turning point in the human-animal relationship? In The End of Meat, filmmaker Marc Pierschel embarks on a journey to discover what effect a post-meat world would have on the environment, the animals, and ourselves. He meets Esther the Wonder Pig, who became an internet phenomenon; talks to pioneers leading the vegan movement in Germany; visits the first fully vegetarian city in India; witnesses rescued farm animals enjoying their newly found freedom; observes the future food innovators making meat and dairy without the animals, even harvesting “bacon” from the ocean and much more. The End of Meat reveals the hidden impact of meat consumption, explores the opportunities and benefits of a shift to a more compassionate diet, and raises critical questions about the future role of animals in our society.

T. Colin Campbell Nutrition Talk at Cornell University Campus

Nutrition as Medicine: a talk by Dr. T. Colin Campbell at the Cornell University, New York. The devastating effects of the traditional narrative on nutrition on human health has been building for well more than a century, and the absence of a specialty on nutrition in medical practice is a travesty that has fueled the fire. Compelling evidence now shows that nutrition is more effective for maintaining and restoring health than all the pills and medical procedures combined — and especially in its prevention and treatment of chronic diseases. Nutrition has been unappreciated in its ability to create and restore human health, and, until this is acknowledged, the resources wasted on treatments for preventable diseases and illnesses will be of cataclysmic significance. The event will be serving delicious vegan and gluten free food from Nikki Green in the Ithaca Commons!

Carnism is the belief system based on conditioning and habitual behavior centered around the practice of consuming particular animals.

To celebrate the Lunar Year of the Pig, we're raising money for Hearts On Noses Sanctuary, dedicated to the rescue of pigs. We are also expanding outside. We have some new food truck and vendor additions to the market that we know you will love. So dress warm, come hungry, and get ready to meet some beautiful faces! This is a 19+ event. For admission, donate canned food, pet food, clothing, or a $2 minimum donation to Hearts on Noses Sanctuary. Accessibility: Like last time, we will have a portable ramp onsite. Access is through the parking lot entrance, not the stairs from sidewalk entrance. Volunteers and vendors needed! Please contact info@peace.ca or bridget@theveganproject.com if you're interested in volunteering or vending at this event.

We feed about half of the world’s edible grain crop to farm animals while some 800,000 humans go hungry. We have engineered a hen to lay her entire body weight in eggs every 24 to 30 days. Farmed animals occupy 45% of the surface area of the earth. A chicken breast comes from a 6-week-old infant-age bird. The Adventist Health Studies (one of the most comprehensive studies of its kind) show vegans having the lowest rates of metabolic syndrome and all the chronic diseases associated with it. By going vegan, America could feed an additional 390 million people. These are just some of the stunning revelations in this presentation that highlights the most compelling ethical, environmental, and health reasons for embracing a plant-based diet, not to mention that the United Nations is openly advocating it as well!

Theirs Too. in 2011, The National Animal Rights Day (NARD) is an annual day observed in 35+ cities in multiple countries around the world on the first Sunday in June, for the purpose of giving a voice to all animals and raising awareness for their rights, until all animals are free from enslavement and until their rights are established and protected by law. We will begin the event with a memorial ceremony for the billions of animals who die every year by human hands. Participants may hold a picture of an animal and a flower that they may add to a pile. Participants may also say a line about why they are there. Others may hold the NARD sign during this time. The memorial ceremony will close with 2 minutes of silence followed by the reading and signing of The Declaration of Animal Rights. We will then transition into a celebration of the animals in our lives and the steps that are being made every year towards ending animal suffering and shifting the planet to a plant-based lifestyle. Join us for community, remembrance, good food, and inspiration! Volunteers needed! If you would like to volunteer for this event, please contact chelsea.davis@gmail.com.

Columbus, OH 43065 United States

Love & Bananas 6:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. To celebrate World Elephant Day, please join us in watching Love & Bananas. Elephant rescues in Thailand are rare, unpredictable, and often life threatening. After waiting 2.5 years, actor/director Ashley Bell and a team of elephant rescuers led by world renowned Asian elephant conservationist and TIME Magazine's Hero of Asia, Lek Chailert, embark on a daring mission 480 miles across Thailand to rescue Noi Na, a 70-year old partially blind elephant, and bring her to freedom. African elephants are slaughtered for their ivory, but sadly the plight of the Asian Elephant has been completely overlooked even though they are the elephant we are most familiar with in zoos, circuses, and elephant rides. Love & Bananas exposes the cruel secret that every Asian elephant has had to endure to become a service animal — a process knows as Pajan, aka The Crush Box. Love & Bananas aims to ignite a new way of thinking about this species and shows what can be done to prevent the extinction of Asian elephants. We will be having a silent auction to raise funds for Save Elephant Foundation (founded by Lek), a Thai nonprofit organization dedicated to providing care and assistance to Thailand’s captive elephant population through a multifaceted approach involving local community outreach, rescue and rehabilitation programs, and educational ecotourism operations. Portia's Cafe will provide vegan food during this screening, and there will be a silent auction benefiting the Save Elephant Foundation.

This conference is a chance to meet and grow with organizations and individuals, both new and established ones.

We’ll meet at Central Place Plaza and conclude the hour by walking over to Nestlé's HQ to deliver over 20,000 petition signatures to executives. A recent Compassion Over Killing investigation exposed massive suffering behind Nestlé's ice cream. Hot irons are burned into calves' flesh to destroy their horns and tissue in a cruel, unnecessary process known as "dehorning" or “disbudding". Cutting ties with this farm isn't enough. Nestlé has the responsibility to push the industry forward by ending this painful practice. And as cow's milk sales curdle, Nestlé can be a true food leader by churning out more vegan options, starting with its Edy's and Dreyer's ice cream brands! Join our giant cow on August 21 to help us moo-ve Nestlé in a compassionate direction! Signs and leaflets will be provided. For more information and to sign our investigator's petition, visit www.COK.net/nestle. Volunteers needed! If you would like to volunteer for this event, please contact rwalker@cok.net.

Mastering Vegan Outreach Workshop - Sheffield, UK

September 7, 2019

57 Burton St.
Sheffield, S6 2HH United Kingdom

9:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. If you would like to get more people to go vegan on the spot or agree to take Challenge 22, do not miss this training! In this workshop, activists will learn advanced communication skills, be able to practice these skills, and receive feedback. After the workshop, you will be able to adapt to different personality types (a.k.a. social styles), build rapport and gain trust quickly, structure outreach conversations for maximum impact, ask the most effective types of questions, handle objections to veganism like a pro, and, ultimately, get more people to commit to going vegan or trying Challenge 22! AVO provides activists with a professional communication skill set to increase success rates in one-on-one vegan outreach conversations. Adapted from corporate sales trainings, this workshop is intended for activists who engage in street outreach, VR Outreach, and conversations with friends, co-workers, and family members. Former Corporate Sales Director Alex Bez has spent the last 10 years training and coaching hundreds of salespeople. Here are some reviews from past participants: "This workshop was completely transformational for me as a vegan outreacher! The skills taught and practiced are not only applicable to vegan outreach but to all areas of communication in our lives. There was a great mix of lecture and interactive activities. The content was so professionally delivered with high standards and great humour. It was truly worth every second of my time!!” —C.S. "I do a lot of outreach, and the techniques I learned this weekend will help immensely — whether you're a newbie or think you're a pro, Alex will help hone your skills and the animals will thank you.” —R.M. "The material was presented in a fun and interesting way using tips from Alex's own vegan outreach experience as well as invaluable tools from his success in the private sales sector. I strongly recommend this workshop to anyone who wants to learn how to coach (not push) people to willingly accept to try living a vegan lifestyle for themselves and see how great it feels to live in alignment with their core values and beliefs. Thank you!" —A.N. Please note that this workshop is not an introduction to veganism. Participants should have a firm grasp on general vegan knowledge (ethics, nutrition, environmental impact, etc.), and have some experience speaking with others about veganism.

Vegan Day Campinas 2019 - Campinas, Brazil

Campinas, 13013-140 Brazil

  10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. This year, Estação Cultura, a building known for hosting cultural events, will host Vegan Day Campinas, a vegan festival organized by the Brazilian Vegetarian Society. The free event will feature 45 vegan exhibitors from the food, health, personal care, crafts, fashion, and decoration industries. The fair will show the public that the vegan universe is vast — going well beyond eating salads — and that it is possible to live free from the animal exploitation market. We will also have health talks with members of the medical profession, as well as nutritionists and digital vegan influencers who will discuss the myths related to food and vegan life. There will be family-friendly music, yoga, and children's entertainment. There will also be an impressive presentation from the group “Anonimous for the Voicelles”. The Brazilian Vegetarian Society, together with Mercy for Animals, will provide information about veganism, addressing animal exploitation and the impacts of this choice on the environment and human health. In April 2018, a survey commissioned by SBV found that 14% of the Brazilian population declared themselves vegetarian, representing a 75% growth compared to 2012. We want the vegan lifestyle to continue to grow. Volunteers needed! If you’re interested in helping out at this event, please contact svbcampinas@gmail.com.
