vegan events in st. catharines

From Niagara Action for Animals, two events of interest to socially-conscious vegans and their political allies...

First:

Wednesday, November 30 at 7 pm, Brock Animal Rights Collective Film Screening Series presents, along with the Live Free Collective and Queer Action Niagara, MARK, winner of the Best Feature Documentary, The Accolade Competition, La Jolla, CA, 2010.

Director Mike Hoolbloom, who will be at the screening, introduces us to "an impassioned animal rights activist, political vegan, [and] dedicated mental health worker," through visual remains and interviews with family, friends, and "his life-partner of ten years, trans performance artist Mirha-Soleil Ross." Mark Karbusicky committed suicide in 2007.

The event is free to the public and everyone is welcome. Vegan treats will be provided. Contact dylanjamespowell@gmail.com or checkout the event page on Facebook.


And a regular event with a special guest:

NAfA Potluck Series presents Justice for Migrant Workers, Friday December 2, 7 pm at the Unitarian Congregation of Niagara, 223 Church St., St. Catharines (Beside Delta Bingo).

This event features guest speaker Tzazna De Las Tunas from non-profit collective Justice for Migrant Workers.

The potluck is free to the public, but all food must be vegan and marked for common allergens.

Also accepting non-perishable food donations for a vegan food serving program at The RAFT!
