For one week in April of every year, animal activists and advocates in multiple countries organize together for World Week for Animals in Laboratories (WWAIL) to highlight the archaic and wasteful use of animals in biomedical research. Here in Seattle, the Seattle Animal Defense League, Action for Animals, and the Northwest Animal Rights Network have coordinated events; we encourage everyone to participate. Details are still being worked out, but they will be updated here as they are finalized.

SATURDAY, APRIL 21st (evening)
WWAIL kickoff!
Join us at a delicious vegan potluck where we will watch Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
Following the movie we will have a brief discussion about the realities of life for animals in laboratories.
