*CANCELLED* Humane Holidays: Exploring The True Price of Electronics and Other Gifts

Wednesday 12/11 6:30-7:30pm

Enjoy an interactive, hands-on activity and short film that will help you make sustainable, peaceful and just choices for the holidays. You’ll also learn about H.E.A.R.T.’s role in creating “Solutionaries” – young people who are solving community and world problems – and find out how you can become one! No signup required.

Humane Education Advocates Reaching Teachers’ (H.E.A.R.T.’s) services are specially designed to provide a combined focus on human rights, animal protection and environmental ethics. Our direct services to educators and students, as well as our city and state level advocacy efforts, enable us to significantly impact the way young people think about their responsibility to one another, animals and the natural world.
