What did YOU do this weekend?

The peta2 Experience: Chicago blew into the Midwest on Saturday, and peta2 staffers Ryan, Paige, Cody, Marta, Christina, and I met up with peta2 members, Youth Advisory Board members, and young activists in Chicago who are changing the world for animals!

The peta2 Experience: Chicago took place at DePaul University’s Schmitt Academic Center—with free food from the generous and delish Native Foods Café, guest speaker Alissa White-Gluz from The Agonist, talks and sessions led by peta2 staffers, and more!
