There are several opportunities to get active and remain active for farmed animals throughout the year. There is something for everybody. It is important to cover all aspects of veganism for farmed animal liberation. Farmed animals are the most abused animals on this planet. All of these wasted lives are seen as nothing more than mere commodities to be exploited for profit. We can all help to end this suffering now! Our campaigns focus on why adopting a vegan lifestyle is healthy, compassionate, fun and cool.
(on or around March 20th)
March 20th is the first day of spring, and what better time to promote compassionate vegan meals? Meatout asks people to recognize the health benefits of a vegan diet while not forgetting other great reasons for leaving death and suffering off of our plates. This is a great opportunity to get outside and educate and inspire people on your campus and surrounding community.
Vegan Earth Day
(on or around April 22)
With increasing public awareness about green living, more and more people are recognizing the magnitude of their food choices and adopting a compassionate, environmentally-friendly vegan diet. Changing light bulbs and recycling will never be enough, and the consequences of animal agriculture upon the environment are of the utmost concern. This is why it is necessary to get active and raise awareness about the connection between environmental devastation and animal agriculture.
World Farm Animals Day
(on or around October 2nd)
World Farm Animals Day is dedicated to exposing, mourning, and memorializing the needless suffering and killing of the more than 55 billion cows, pigs, turkeys, chickens, and other sentient land animals in the world's factory farms and slaughterhouses. It is a day for all to speak out against the atrocities and brutalization inflicted on animals raised for meat, eggs, and dairy.
(throughout the month of November)
To animals, there is absolutely no “thanks” in thanksgiving. Each year about 300 million turkeys are killed for food. Whether factory-farmed, “free-range” or “humanely raised”, all turkeys endure miserable conditions: standing in their own excrement, their beaks seared off with hot blades and a horrific slaughterhouse end. This abuse is not limited to turkeys- all animals raised for their milk, eggs, and flesh live unnaturally short miserable lives. Spread compassion towards farmed animals during the holidays.
(ongoing throught the year)
Whether you are a seasoned activist or still making the transition, you can get involved. We encourage people to go out on Mondays and have info tables, feed-ins, or convince their college cafeterias to serve only vegan meals on Mondays. Meatout Mondays are a perfect opportunity for newcomers to sign up for FARM’s weekly e-newsletter featuring a vegan recipe, nutritional info and product highlights.
