Come find out more, ask questions, see what you think. For the potluck, gather at 5:00, eat at 5:30. If you're coming just for the talk, plan to arrive no later than 6:30. Donations accepted to cover program expenses.

We're excited to present Brian Burns, a DxE organizer and coordinator of their international press team (more about Brian below). During the presentation, he will:
- Show how DxE's campaigns have provoked public consciousness (including coverage in The New York Times and CNN), inspired nonviolent direct action in over 95 cities and 20 countries.
- Discuss what successful social justice movements and groundbreaking sociological research say about the nature of social change.
- Discuss how DxE incorporates these results to provoke the public and build a mass movement for animals.
Afterwards, DxE Denver organizer Hana Low will introduce our nascent DxE chapter in Denver and how folks might plug in to this community.
Take a look at the DxE website for insightful articles and videos.
