Spring Member Drive
Today is the first day of our spring member drive. As such, we ask our listeners to please provide Animal Voices with some financial support to keep us on the air each week. Vancouver Co-operative Radio is an entirely volunteer operated, listener sponsored charitable non-profit organization. Any amount is greatly appreciated and all donations are tax deductible.
To donate, please go to coopradio.org, and select “Donate To Co-op Radio”. When making your donation, please remember to mention Animal Voices in the comment section, to make sure the donation goes to us. Thank you in advance!
Marley Daviduk is the founder of the local, grassroots organization, Vancouver Animal Defence League. VADL’s main focus is on long-term sustained campaigns against animal exploitative businesses, as well as petitioning for governmental change, and providing outreach to the public.
We speak with Marley about VADL’s current and past campaigns, some of their memorable successes, and some of the ways that people can get involved or help out.
Dylan Powell on Building Coalitions
We chat with Dylan Powell about building coalitions with other social justice movements, to share skills and strengthen the total fight for justice. Dylan Powell is the co-founder of Marineland Animal Defence, a grassroots group in Niagara falls, which stands up against the unjust captivity and mistreatment of animals at Marineland Aquapark. He is also heavily involved in solidarity and coalition organizing amongst other social justice movements, and has an online blog where he discusses many of these, and other, issues.
