Happy Thanksgiving from the Monica of the Berkeley Organization for Animal Advocacy! She sent us this photo of their annual Thanksliving feast (sorry! I can’t read!) her family’s Thanksgiving feast, where they ate roasted root vegetables with sage butter, mashed potatoes, mushroom gravy, stuffing, Gardein, cranberry sauce, green beans with almonds, potato leek soup, pumpkin pie, apple and persimmon crumble, and apple spice cider.
What a spread!

Go to Thanksliving at U.C. Berkeley! Free food, people!  »

If you’re in Berkeley on Wednesday, Nov. 16, and wants some FREE VEGAN FOOD, look no further than Berkeley Organization for Animal Advocacy’s Thanksliving event! These kids have got it going on, food-wise, with great companies like Gardein and Field Roast donating, so you know shiz is gonna be DELICIOUS.

The celebration takes place at UC Berkeley’s Upper Sproul from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (not 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. as previously stated), but I bet to take full advantage of the free eats, you should probably get there on the earlier side? I know how people (read: me) get around free food, and the words “disgusting” and “insane” come to mind. Organizer Monica Chen says that it’s a particularly great event for omnis because they can try all sorts of amazing vegan options and see that a veg Thanksgiving isn’t just possible, it’s extra delicious! So, bring your grumpalump meat-mouth friends and family and show them the tasty-ass light!

And remember, all the awesome vegan Thanksgiving events everywhere, and also, where to dine out for S.F. Bay Area vegan Thanksgiving, and where to order in from (including desserts)! Including, if you’re in the S.F. Bay Area, our closest sanctuary’s celebration, the Harvest Home Sanctuary Toast to the Turkey’s, which is gonna be rad, and we’re sponsoring (!), and is coming up on Saturday, Nov. 12! Get on it!

Wednesday: Berkeley Vegan Bakesale for Berkeley Animal Care Services!  »


Vegan bakesales are the best bakesales, right? Tasty, portable food, all of it cruelty-free, and all the proceeds go to charitable causes. The next one you should attend is on Wednesday, put on by the Berkeley Organization for Animal Advocacy in support of Berkeley Animal Care Services, part of the city of Berkeley. It’s a no-kill shelter that needs money to expand. Help them out by picking up some delicious baked goods!

The sale will be held tomorrow, Sept. 14 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sproul Plaza on the UC Berkeley campus. For details, check out the Facebook event page. See you there!

Confronting Compassion Fatigue workshop at UC Berkeley!  »

This Sunday at U.C. Berkeley, I’m going to be speaking with a couple other folks about not being depressed and carrying on in a world that’s filled with terrible shit. It’ll be fun, I promise, and there will be free vegan food and drinks. And I’ll tell you some secrets! Fun! If you need to jump start your activism, want to find creative new ways to help animals and humans, or just be surrounded by like-minded people for a little, this is for you!

Here’s the Facebook page with more details, and in case you’re too awesome for Facebook, here’s the info:

Sunday, Apr. 3, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
126 Barrows Hall, UC Berkeley 

I guess that’s it! Oh, it’s free to students and $10 for non-students, and all the money goes to the wonderful Harvest Home Sanctuary. Love them, they’re the best.

See your compassionate asses there!
