2013 Florida March Against Cruelty to Animals

2013 Florida March Against Cruelty to AnimalsSaturday, November 16, 12pm-2:30pm – Bubier Park  at Huizenga Plaza, Fort Lauderdale

Join the 2013 Florida March Against Cruelty to Animals to unite all advocates for animals so they can give voice to their respective causes in solidarity. In the process, advocates will learn about different ways to help animals and how to show compassion for all animals. Media coverage of the march may galvanize the public to think more critically about the decisions they’re making and how they affect others. Finally, the March aims to serve as the first of dozens that will take place in every other state in the country that will culminate with a national march for all animals to prevent cruelty on a massive scale.  The march will begin at 12:00 pm with opening remarks from the event founder and organizer, Andrew Kirschner, at Huizenga Plaza. Following those remarks, the march will begin. The March will begin at Bubier Park (Huizenga Plaza). Then east to Riverwalk N. and pass Esplanade Park, then loop around the back of the Broward Center  for Performing Arts and re-enter Esplanade Park and walk back to Bubier Park (Huizenga Plaza) the same way back. This route is safe and scenic. You can walk holding a sign or banner representing animal causes of your choice or you have the option to chant, sing songs, hold hands, and talk to others in the march. 100% of the money raised will be used to organize and host the march. 100% plant-based food will be provided at the event.  Animals will not be permitted in the march for safety and liability reasons.
