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.
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!

Please read their statement below and sign the petition!

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.

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.

It’s with a very heavy heart that I must announce the passing of two wonderful animal advocates and dear friends. I’m sure many of you have already heard of these sad events through social media and other outlets, but I wanted to pass it along just in case.

Here’s the link for our new and improved second year Ecofest, to take place on April 27, 2019 in conjunction with the Pottstown Climate March:
We need lots of volunteers to help set up, help vendors get set up, monitor the park to make sure people are properly using the recycling and composting areas, staff the Mobilization for Animals’ registration and information tables, and help pack up at day’s end. Please spare a few hours for the Earth and all the species who share it!
Please post to any email lists, social media outlets, bulletin boards, or anything else to which you have access.
Also, if your organization or business would like to be a vendor or sponsor, that information is also on our website.
Hope to see you there, one way or another!
Thanks for anything you can do!
