Special Online Events

 

April 5: Celebrate Golden Rule Day with our Vegan Message 

Join our Interfaith Vegan Coalition for International Golden Rule Day, an annual online 24-hour live event when people from around the world answer the question, “Why the Golden Rule Matters Now?” via discussions, music, poetry, prayers, and ceremonies. Watch our video with a strong vegan message of compassion for all beings during the live broadcast.

 

April 7: Steal The Bay Online Town Hall

Join our online Town Hall with key organizers and guest speakers to stop the bulldozing of Ballona Wetlands Ecological Reserve, which contains one of the last remaining wetlands in Los Angeles. Destroying Ballona will remove vital habitat for many animals, ruin underlying aquifers, pollute upstream water, allow trash into this fragile ecosystem, and add more carbon into our atmosphere. Environmental organization Heal The Bay backs the fake restoration and receives substantial donations from SoCal Gas, which has financial interests in the land. Register for free to join live and to discover how you can help!
