Wow, what a night! We were so excited to get all dressed up and party with old and new friends, to celebrate all of the animals rescued by Farm Sanctuary. Not only did this annual, star-studded, elegant event raise a lot of money for the animals, we also got some huge news.Guests of honor Tracey and John Stewart announced that their animal farm will become another location for Farm Sanctuary!Hooray for increased awareness and the big hearts of the Stewarts.
Yes, LAFC rocked out at the Cowspiracy movie premiere!
August 21, 2015
If you haven’t heard of Cowspiracy, it’s an eye-opening documentary highlighting the monumental, destructive impact of animal agriculture and commercial fishing on our planet. But while it may seem like an insurmountable problem, the good news is that there issomething you and I can do as individuals!
By becoming aware of the food choices we make and where we spend our money, we can take back the power from the greedy industries that are destroying the Earth and create a massive wave of positive change. High fives!
This was our very first table at a festival!The Seed Experience holds events all year long, raising awareness of the various aspects of the vegan lifestyle.The Expo is their biggest, annual event showcasing tons of products and showcasing interesting speakers to educate and answer questions about animal welfare, health and even fashion.
Our Editor in Chief, Adrienne Borgersen hosted a panel called “Do You Know Where Your Clothes Come From? Why Veganism is Not Just a Diet, but a Lifestyle”discussing the impact of fashion on animals. Did you know that leather, fur, wool, feathers and silk are sourced from animals, in ways that are just as cruel as factory farming?
Despite the bone chilling cold (it was 9 degrees), 150 of our friends and subscribers (who we also consider friends) came out to celebrate the launch of our magazine!Over 60 sponsors and volunteers donated their time and talents to help prepare delicious vegan food, drinks, a rockin’ goodie bag, great music, and a raffle to raise money for Tuff Tails Animal Rescue.It was tons of fun.Were you there?
Party all night!
