Fur Free Friday

Join the New Hampshire Animal Rights League on Fur Free Friday, November 25th, 2022, from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm in a peaceful protest against the use of fur.

Fur Free Friday, which takes place the day after Thanksgiving, is a global campaign in which people all over the world educate holiday shoppers about the cruel fur industry.

Every fur coat, fur accessory, or piece of fur trim, whether sourced from wild animals or those raised on fur farms, causes tremendous suffering and takes unnecessary lives.

Please meet on the corner of Hazen Drive and Loudon Road in Concord, NH. Parking: If you turn onto Hazen Drive and take the first left, parking is available. Signs will be provided.

Guest Speaker

Chris Schadler

of Project Coyote

Becoming Wolf: Eastern Coyotes in New Hampshire — Myths surround coyotes and cloud our understanding of them. Conservation biologist Chris Schadler will tell us the true story of eastern coyotes — how they live among us but are rarely seen, and how they contribute to keep our forests and fields healthy. Despite the ecological benefits they provide, coyotes are the most persecuted carnivore in North America. And despite human efforts to eradicate them, coyotes survive and thrive. Chris been studying wolves and coyotes for 40 years.

Summer Picnic

Our annual summer outing is back, and we’ve got an extra special party planned to make up for two missed summers!

Join us on picturesque Four Tree Island in Portsmouth for a vegan cookout, raffles, games, and special guest appearance for the little ones! Details to follow…

This event is FREE with plenty of parking, so bring the whole family or a big group of friends.

Please register with number of guests before Sunday, August 7, so we can be sure to have enough delicious food for everyone!

Apr 23, 2022 — Puppy Mill Protest

On Saturday, April 23, NHARL will be participating in a puppy mill protest along with Voice for Animals Maine and other compassionate Granite Staters.

The event will take place on the public sidewalk outside Somerset Plaza (379 Amherst St.) in Nashua — home of mill puppy retailer Family Pet & Aquarium — from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm. Our Event leader is Kathryn.

The larger the crowd, the more attention we can bring to the issue, so join us for whatever portion you can and bring your friends.

Some have expressed interest in having lunch afterward. If you have time, this will be a nice opportunity to socialize and talk more about pet stores and puppy mills.

Signs will be provided, or you can bring your own awesome sign.

Multiple states have passed legislation prohibiting the sale of puppy mill puppies in pet stores. It’s time for New Hampshire to do the same!

April 16, 2022 — Discover Wild NH Day

On Saturday, April 16, NHARL will have a tent at NH Fish & Game’s Discover Wild NH Day, an annual event held at NH Fish and Game headquarters in Concord.

The event, which is free and open to the public, goes from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.

Although this event promotes hunting, fishing, and trapping, as well as other forms of animal exploitation, groups that do true environmental and conservation work will also be exhibiting. For NHARL, the event is a valuable opportunity to spread a message of compassion and respect for wildlife.

Our exhibit will cover humane “pest” control — ways to co-exist peacefully with our wild neighbors —  with a focus on mice. We’ll be educating the public about the horrors of glue traps and rodenticides and giving away the Smart Mouse Trap. We have plans to make our booth both fun and informative!

Mar 27, 2022 — Muscles, Munchies, & Matinée

In partnership with The STRAND Dover, New Hampshire Animal Rights League Presents: “The Game Changers” with Introduction and Post-Film Q&A by Fitness and Nutrition Educator Jennifer Burzycki

Come watch the critically-acclaimed film The Game Changers on the big screen and get answers to all your questions about protein, strength, and plant-based eating from athlete and nutritionist Jennifer Burzycki.

Directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Louie Psihoyos and executive produced by James Cameron, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jackie Chan, Lewis Hamilton, Novak Djokovic, and Chris Paul, The Game Changers tells the story of James Wilks — elite Special Forces trainer and The Ultimate Fighter winner — as he travels the world on a quest to uncover the optimal diet for human performance. What James discovers radically changes his understanding of food and his definition of true strength.

Introducing the film will be Jennifer Burzycki, a plant-based athlete and nutrition educator who embarked on her own quest for the optimal diet after being diagnosed with cancer at age 33. Jennifer made it her mission to eat for survival, and what she learned along the way turned her old ideas about nutrition upside down. Now cancer free and stronger than ever, she shares with others what she has learned about the power of fitness and a plant-based diet. (Scroll down to read Jennifer’s complete biography.)

This event is FREE with complimentary energy bites and a chance to win some great door prizes, including a Ninja Professional Blender valued at $100 — perfect for making smoothies! The cash bar and concession stand will also be open.

Bring along your partner or your pals to see this eye-opening film. Seating is limited, so get your tickets now!

About Jennifer Burzycki

Jennifer Burzycki is certified in plant-based nutrition through the T. Colin Campbell Foundation and is a regular presenter at the NH VegFest—delivering popular lectures including, ‘Is Being Vegan Enough?’ and ‘Plant Powered Performance.’ She is also an avid runner and scuba diver and has assisted athletes in accomplishing their fitness goals through proper nutrition.

Jennifer Burzycki

Jennifer has always had a keen interest in science, but it wasn’t until her own breast cancer diagnosis at the age of 33 that she explored the scientific connection between lifestyle factors and chronic disease. The search to recover and improve her body’s performance while reducing her risk for further chronic disease led her to adopt a Whole Food, Plant-Based (WFPB) lifestyle shortly thereafter.

As an educator at the NH State Prison for Men and the NH Correctional Facility for Women, for nearly 14 years she has been instructing her students in science and nutrition. Jennifer received a B.S. in Biotechnology from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and an M. Ed. from Rivier University.

She enjoys familiarizing others about the link between diet and chronic disease and their ability to influence their health destiny. She encourages individuals seeking to shift to a more WFPB lifestyle by providing manageable strategies to ensure adequate nutrition is achieved while addressing real and perceived barriers that can hinder their progress.

Jennifer stresses that regardless of the condition you may find yourself, it is never too late to reap the benefits of an improved lifestyle.
