Citizens group holding ‘Elephant Teach-In’ Thursday in support of retiring zoo’s elephants

December 10th, 2013 · Comments

A group called “Elephant Teach-In” is holding a teach-in from 6:15-8 p.m. Thursday at the Phinney Neighborhood Center, 6532 Phinney Ave. N., Blue building, Room 6. The group wants Woodland Park Zoo to retire its three elephants to a sanctuary.

The Teach In concept is a means of inspiring constructive activism. Historical precedents include: the resistance to the military draft for the Vietnam War, alarms about the impact of corporations on the environment, and the Occupy movement. For the Elephant Teach In, citizens are invited to gather to learn from one another, teach one another and discuss community means of affecting political change.

The group has more information on its Facebook page.
