1. F.E.P. at World Veg Festival
The San Francisco Vegetarian Society will be commemorating World Vegetarian Day by hosting its annual WORLD VEG FESTIVAL on Saturday and Sunday, October 2nd and 3rd. F.E.P. will be tabling on both days, AND our director, lauren Ornelas, will be speaking on Sunday afternoon. The event will also feature many other well-known speakers. The two-day festival is taking place in the San Francisco County Fair Building, located at the Lincoln Way and 9th Avenue entrance to Golden Gate Park. We’d love to see you there!
2. Upcoming events!
World Farmed Animals Day observed on (or around) October 2nd, is dedicated to exposing, mourning, and memorializing the more than 58 billion cows raised for ‘meat’ and milk, chickens raised for ‘meat’ and eggs; as well as pigs, turkeys, and other land animals who needlessly suffer and die every year in the world’s factory farms and slaughterhouses.
World Vegan Week, October 24 – 31st, is a celebration of compassion and a time to take action for animals, the environment and everyone’s well-being. We encourage people to use this week to educate their communities about the vegan lifestyle as a compassionate, sustainable, and healthy way of eating and living.
Join In Defense of Animals to participate in these events!
