Equality Maryland is holding it's annual lobby day on February 12 in Annapolis...I'm a district coordinator so if anyone has any questions about anything my e-mail is jenna.brager [at] gmail.com.

One of the things we're advocating for, and what I'm focusing on, is getting hate crime legislation that is inclusive of gender expression and identity. If you're interested at all, please please please sign up and come.

08:37 pm - BARC events
This community seems to be kind of dead, but just in case it isn't...

The Baltimore Animal Rights Coalition has been busy with the Wegmans Cruelty campaign (www.WegmansCruelty.com), demanding that Wegmans Food Markets stop using battery cages on its egg farm in Wolcott, NY, and raising awareness of the cruelty of factory farming in the process. At our demonstration last Sunday, a photographer from the Towson Times and a reporter from The Jeffersonian documented our efforts.

Please help the Wegmans hens out by making a call to Wegmans' corporate headquarters in Rochester, NY at 1-800-WEGMANS (1-800-934-6267) to ask why there are protesters outside their Hunt Valley store every weekend, and why Wegmans won't make a welfare improvement that their competitors Whole Foods, Wild Oats and Trader Joe's have already made. Thank You!

Baltimore Animal Rights Coalition

SATURDAY, JANUARY 7: E-MAIL PARTY/ANIMAL RIGHTS MEET-UP

WHAT: BARC will have an e-mail party on Saturday. The admission? Send an e-mail (computers will be set up at the party) asking Wegmans Food Markets to stop keeping hens in battery cages on its egg farm in upstate New York, and send an email to all your friends asking them to do the same. This event is being combined with the January Baltimore animal rights meet-up, which is a monthly gathering for food, fun and informal conversation about animal rights (See http://animalrights.meetup.com/20/events/4805015/) so bring some vegan food if you can.

08:20 pm - Leggo my Legume! x-posted.
Hey everyone,

I am currently calling for submissions to a zine called "Leggo my Legume," which will contain activist/anarchist/liberal/whatever information, articles, comics, whatever people want to throw my way, as long as it can photocopy alright and isn't racist, sexist etc. (the usual rules). LmL is based in Baltimore, and hasn't gotten off the ground at this point, but we're hoping to breathe life into it. Submissions can be sent to bohemianrhapsody@comcast.net, just put LmL or Leggo my Legume in the subject line, also, if anyone has a query or comment, that's the address to send it to. Really anything goes, if you want to get something out into the world, this is a good chance. We'll be sending copies wherever the wind blows.

Thanks!
