Some of our most dedicated animal advocates will host an informal rap session where we'll share simple and effective ways that everyone can be a voice for change and create a compassionate world for animals.
These simple activities don’t take any particular skills or vast amounts of money, but will translate into huge returns in outreach and education (vegan, animal rights, health, environment, human rights and peace).
