      Vegan Spirituality Gathering
      Looking for like-minded people who care about animals and consciously choose a cruelty-free lifestyle? Public Eye invites you to discuss veganism as a spiritual practice and participate in social outings to places that promote compassion for animals (sanctuaries, vegan restaurants, film screenings). Each monthly gathering has a different theme. We welcome new participants and fresh ideas! We are co-creating the meaning of Vegan Spirituality and building a community based on these beliefs. Whether you're religious, agnostic, or atheistic, you belong in this group if you love animals and believe they are sentient beings. Regular attendance is encouraged, but not required. Come to one gathering and check it out!
      Date: Saturday, June 27th
      Time: 5:00-7:00pm
      Cost: Free
      Location: Pennsport section of South Philadelphia, Please RSVP for exact address.

      Celebrate July 4th with The Vegan Bus!
      Join Public Eye: Artists for Animals and The Vegan Bus for a down-home vegan BBQ with hula hoops, lawn games, musical instruments, and an art project for kids. The Vegan Bus is a group of activists, artists, and speakers traveling on a full-sized school bus running on waste vegetable oil. The Bus uses art, performance, and media to raise awareness of the connections between dietary choice, personal health, cultural ethics, and globally sustainable ecology. The Bus will park at Clark Park, a lovely setting in University City with trees and a playground. Please bring a vegan/vegetarian picnic lunch, blanket/lawn chairs, and drinks for your family. Samples of veggie dogs, burgers, and vrapple are provided for the BBQ! Friendly dogs are welcome at Clark Park. We request an RSVP with the number of children for the art project.
