well, i’m glad i went to that meeting last night, because i got clued in on some things our group has planned. *pats self on back* heh.
first, we’re doing a demo for fur-free friday (which is the day after thanksgiving). it will be a "peaceful demo," and for that i am grateful. i’m not really the chanting or yelling type, i’m afraid. but standing around for an hour or so, holding signs and possibly leafleting? i think i can handle that. the location is a fur store a few blocks away from a duplex i lived in while i was in late grade school and middle school. i always hated that store, even as a little kid, so in a weird way i’m kind of psyched about this demo. in most ways, though, i’m nervous, because i don’t really do demos. oh well. i’m going to try and get my sister to come with me–she gets REALLY fired up about fur and she’s always wanted to do a fur demo, so hopefully she’ll join me.
in other news, our group is trying to bring three speakers to campus next semester, and it’s a pretty great lineup: dr. michael greger, will potter (of green is the new red), and nathan runkle from mercy for animals. i really hope it all pans out!
i’m heading to texas for a convention today, so with any luck i’ll be blogging from there next. i’m sure you’re all just on the edge of your seats!
