I love my Dream Into Change salons, and I’m taking them international this summer! I will be visiting the lovely Vancouver, BC, by train (of course!) at the end of June and beginning of July, and I will be and hosting a vegan-themed salon while I’m there. I can’t wait to hear what all those cool Vancouverites are dreaming up!
A month before that, I will also be hosting a vegan-themed salon in Boston (Cambridge, to be more precise) over the Memorial Day weekend,when I visit that fair city to connect with a dear friend. I’m finding that the vegan social and activist scenes in Boston are different from those in the Western cities I’m more familiar with, so I’m interested to see what sorts of things the movers and shakers (and aspiring movers & shakers!) in that region are dreaming up as well. The number of all-vegan restaurants in the Boston area seems to have just about tripled since the last time I was there, in 2013, for my East Coast Empathy Tour… so I know there must be cool things percolating!
And finally, right here in my own Portland backyard, on May 9th I will be hosting my first ever sustainable-transportation themed salon. Portland is well known for being a great bike and transit city; I myself have lived here happily since 1990 without ever owning a car. There is constant innovation in those arenas, and much of it comes from the grassroots. I want to learn what people are working on and envisioning right here where I live.
More details about all the events can be found on my Events page, and as always, I would love your help in spreading the word about these events. So, if you know people in these cities who might be interested, please share the event links with them!
