Remembering Regan Russell

Join us for a peaceful vigil in honor of vegan activist Regan Russell this Sunday, June 28 at Villanova University

Regan Russell was a beloved activist in Toronto, Ontario, dedicating her life to those who needed her most. She was fiercely committed and would not be silenced by unjust laws, or pressure from mega-industries trying to hide abuses. She had her life taken while offering a moment of comfort to pigs destined for slaughter. We will not be silent either, about injustice, about cruelty, or about her death.

Help MFA PA Support Black Lives Matter Protesters

Mobilization for Animals PA, Inc., stands in solidarity with Black Lives Matter protestors. We are currently collecting donations to feed protestors from Philly local restaurants Blackbird Pizzeria and 20th Street Pizza.

We’re also working with Gangster Vegan in Norristown (recent protests here in Montgomery county have centered around unseating a Commissioner).

To contribute, please use our PayPal giving fund to donate without fees.

We’re also looking for volunteers to pick up from both locations in the coming days around lunchtime and help deliver to the protests. Already tomorrow we could use help with an order from 20th Street Pizza. Please contact us directly if you are able to act as a pickup or delivery person.

Keep up the good fight!

URGENT: Ask Senate to Revise HEROES Act!

Following up our recent post regarding the HEROES Act, we are asking everyone to contact their senators to demand revisions protecting farmed animals now that the legislation has been passed by the U.S. House of Representatives. As drafted, it would give essentially a bailout to large agribusinesses for “depopulating” their farmed animals. These mass killings are a brutal way to deal with these poor animals who are already given such a cruel fate.

ENOUGH OF OUR HARD-EARNED TAXPAYER DOLLARS ALREADY GO TO SUBSIDIZE THE HORRENDOUS MASS-PRODUCTION AND SLAUGHTER OF BILLIONS OF ANIMALS EACH YEAR.  THESE INDUSTRIES ARE NIGHTMARES FOR PUBLIC HEALTH. THE ENVIRONMENT, AND ALL ANIMALS, HUMAN AND NON-HUMAN ALIKE, WHO ARE FORCED TO WORK AND LIVE IN THESE FILTHY CONDITIONS.

NO BAILOUTS FOR AGRIBUSINESS!

PLEASE SIGN, THEN FORWARD AND WIDE!

URGENT: Farmed animals need your help now!

Billions of federal tax dollars are once again being slated for COVID-19 relief in the upcoming HEROES Act.  As the petition states, these should be going to those most in need (people who have lost income and healthcare, suddenly become stay-at-home parents with no access to childcare assistance, struggling to feed themselves, their kids and their pets, etc), not to providing funding for horrific killing methods of already severely abused animals destined for food.

Tracye Bennis-Sine: All Mothers’ Milk

Can we celebrate Mother’s Day? Can we celebrate being at home and feeding our babies (and toddlers, if they want it) our own milk? Can we celebrate our ability to make nourishing, delicious meals for our children without causing the unbelievable harm that is caused when people choose to support the factory farming of animals?

Motherhood has always been a feminist issue to me. Long before I became a mother, myself, I was angered to live in a society that valued women (and, especially, mothers) so little and gave such inordinate power to men. As a vegan, too, it’s clear to me that the dairy industry is a horrifically exaggerated version of the way we, as a society, treat human mothers and children.

Happy Mother’s Day 2020: Respect ALL Mothers

On this Mother’s Day, we ask that everyone consider the questions and images we have posted here, and do what you can to incorporate more compassionate choices into your daily lives, for the sake of all mothers.

The Mother/Child bond is powerful, and is equally important to all of the non-human species who carry their children in their bodies, or keep them warm as they grow and hatch, or otherwise protect and watch over them while they prepare to enter the world. These mothers, when allowed to do so, also nurse their young, teach them to find food, nuzzle them for comfort, model appropriate social behaviors, and are fiercely protective.
