PALS hosted a vegan potluck at Roadrunner Park this weekend to kick off the new year! This was our first event and we were delighted to see over 40 people attend.
PALS has risen from the ashes of an earlier animal rights group known as Phoenix Animal Liberation Squad (also PALS). Organizers from the former group have resurrected the current group. Old pals and new pals came together to meet, eat, and talk activism.
Here are just some of the many delicious dishes that pals members enjoyed! Three different kinds of mac and cheese, pesto wraps, roasted potatoes, ratatouille, curry, chili, brownies, cookies, banana bread, blueberry muffins, chocolate ice cream and more.
At the potluck we announced our first protest which will be at JBS slaughterhouse in West Phoenix. We plan to focus on four different themes throughout the year, the first one being animals killed for human consumption. At the end of this theme we plan to visit a local animal sanctuary.
Thank you to all who came and made this such a great event. We look forward to seeing you again soon, pals! Our next potluck is planned for the beginning of April.
