As the founding chapter, the San Francisco Bay Area chapter is the oldest and largest in the Direct Action Everywhere network. The Bay Area chapter serves as a hub for DxE and for open rescue, often hosting out-of-town activists for training. In the summer of 2016, the Bay Area chapter opened the first animal rights community center in North America - the Berkeley Animal Rights Center. They also host and organize the annual DxE Forum. The Bay Area chapter is on a quest to make Berkeley the first animal-friendly city in the world.
