This past weekend, some peta2 staffers hopped on a plane to Denver to hold the very first peta2 Experience: Denver! Here are some awesome things that you missed:

Rachelle kicked off the day by telling us “what not to do” when we’re speaking up for animals. Tip: Don’t be the person everyone hates to have lunch with. Then Whitney and I talked about how to deal with friends and family and how to answer those stupid, stupid questions (e.g., “If animals aren’t supposed to be eaten, why are they made of meat?”)

We had some DELISH vegan pizza for lunch!

I kind of had a heart attack when MMA fighter (and major cutie) Mac Danzig showed up to talk to us about how being vegan has been a great plus in his fighting career.

Marta taught us how to make some tasty vegan recipes from PETA’s Vegan College Cookbook, and yep, samples were devoured.


Shannon and Chris showed us how to speak up for animals in college and everywhere else we go!

We finished up the day by protesting Ringling Bros.!

    I'm a therian /otherkin wolf lycanthrope that sees this lifetime in this body as a punishment that the god and goddess has bestowed upon me, but I try my best to do good to all living beings except usually humans which I hate and detest with all my being.
