Here are events coming up that CfA is organizing or will be attending.
Joining others to help animals can be invigorating and empowering. Each person who holds a sign, hands out literature, answers questions at a table, or participates in any way in an event makes a difference.
Tuesday December 17
Dinner, Talk, and Book-Signing with Isa Chandra Moskowitz
Please join us at Busboys and Poets in Arlington
for a talk and book-signing by best-selling vegan cookbook author Isa Chandra Moskowitz
. This event will be part of Isa's book tour for her latest cookbook, Isa Does It
Isa has authored or co-authored seven highly-acclaimed vegan cookbooks since 2005. For the past 10 years, her Post Punk Kitchen website
has been the go-to spot for info and discussions about vegan food, recipes, and cooking techniques.
Isa Does It
is filled with weeknight-friendly, yet imaginative and mouthwatering recipes—soups, salads, stews, burgers, stir-fries, desserts...lots of interesting combos and new looks for old favorites. You'll be able to buy it at the event.
The event will be held in the Robeson Room
at the Shirlington (Arlington) location of Busboys and Poets
. There will be plenty of time for Q&A. Feel free to bring in any of Isa's books to get them signed.
We expect this event to fill up, so RSVPs are required
. To reserve a spot, go here
. We're using EventBrite to manage RSVPs, and it makes you “buy” a free “ticket,” but there aren't really tickets, so don't worry about that.
This event filled up in almost no time, and there is also a long wait list. We are looking into options so that more people can see Isa. Stay tuned!
We have confirmed that we have the room until 9pm.
6:30pm – 9:00pm
6:30 — get seated, order, start eating
7:25 — brief introductions from from VSDC and Compassion for Animals
7:30 — Isa speaks
8:10 — Q&A
8:30 — book-signing
We did this last year with the The Vegetarian Society of DC
(VSDC), and it was popular, so we're doing it again this year.
Please join us for a friendly, casual dinner at Loving Hut Restaurant
in Falls Church. Nothing fancy, just a tasty meal at an all-vegan restaurant!
So that we can tell the restaurant what to expect, we ask that you please RSVP by December 29
if you're planning to attend.

Volunteer Appreciation Party
If you volunteered at a Compassion for Animals (CfA) event during 2013, we want to thank you with a party! Our plan is to send an email invitation to everyone who volunteered during 2013, but if for some reason we missed you, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
This will be an informal event. CfA board members will make all the food, but guests are free to bring a dish too, it they want to.
