This week we are writing Amber Canavan and Krow. Krow is an environmental and indigenous rights activist who faced 20 charges stemming from a June 2013 Penokee Defenders protest that disrupted GTAC bore hole drilling at a mine site on the Penokee Range. On January 21, 2015 Krow was sentenced to 9 months (scheduled release: November 2015) plus 5 years of supervised release, and may face additional charges for “bail jumping” for allegedly entering a forest that was off limits while the case was pending.

Amber is an animal rights activist and cruelty whistleblower who just began her sentence in a New York jail for trespassing at a “farm” that imprisons ducks to use as “foie gras” in order to expose their cruel practices. She is currently serving her 30 days sentence.

We’re happy to have a guest speaker, Donny Moss, to talk about Amber’s case. Donny is a NYC-based animal rights activist who writes for Their Turn, an online magazine with news, commentary & calls to action.

If, for whatever reason, you can’t make it to dinner, please take the time to write Krow and Amber a letter:
