The Washington Week of Action
began with a community event full of laughing, networking, and good food. We were privileged to have Dr. Alex Hershaft, give a talk on the history of animal rights at the event.
In the days following, the week's actions centered on two pressure campaigns: the LVMH anti-fur campaign, and a local DC campaign urging restaurants Kinship and Métier to drop foie gras.
There were other actions throughout the week such as anti-dairy protests outside the USDA, a sea life advocacy demo at the WHARF, a rodeo protest, various talks and workshops from animal rights figures, and a food giveaway for #MeatOut
