Richmond, Va. – On Wednesday morning, PETA will hold its annual General Assembly Breakfast at the Colgate Darden Memorial Garden in Richmond—complete with coffee and tea, delicious treats from favorite eateries Yorgo’s Bageldashery in Norfolk and My Vegan Sweet Tooth in Virginia Beach, and good company, courtesy of a pack of delightful dogs, including a few available for adoption. The outdoor event will give legislators a chance to dig in and chat with PETA about legislative priorities for this session.
Where: Colgate Darden Memorial Garden, 1198 Capitol St., Richmond (outside the General Assembly building)
When: Wednesday, February 7, 9:45-11:45 a.m.
“PETA’s General Assembly Breakfast will be a fun opportunity for policymakers to fetch a few treats and shake a few paws,” says PETA Senior Vice President Daphna Nachminovitch. “We look forward to seeing you there.”
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way”—points out that Every Animal Is Someone and offers free Empathy Kits for people who need a lesson in kindness.
