1. Sonoma County Chicken Save’s vigil was a great success

On Tuesday, October 2, more than 25 activists traveled from all over the Bay Area to join Sonoma County Chicken Save (coordinated by Food Empowerment Project) in raising awareness about the cruelty taking place behind the walls of the Petaluma Poultry processing facility.

The slaughterhouse prepared for our arrival by posting new private property signs and positioning security at all of the entrances; however, you can see from these pictures that their efforts to discourage us did not work!

Thanks to everyone who came out for the vigil and made it such a success. To learn more about the importance of bearing witness to animals’ suffering, check out F.E.P. founder lauren Ornelas’ blog post “So Many Lives . . .” highlighting this kind of activism.

Go to Sonoma County Chicken Save’s Facebook page to learn more about us (you do not have to be on Facebook to view).

Next event: Speak Out for the Chickens, Saturday, November 1.


2. Intergalactic Feminism dance party benefit for F.E.P. in Seattle

If you will be in Seattle in mid-October and enjoy a great dance party, then come to the Feminist Drinking Club’s Intergalactic Feminism dance party on Friday, October 17, from 9pm to 2am at Seattle’s Highline Bar.

Feminist Drinking Club is donating an incredible 100% of their proceeds to F.E.P.

So get ready to shake your space booty all night to groovy tunes by DJ Coldheart while enjoying drink specials, a drawing with out-of-this-world prizes, a dance-off, and more. DJ Coldheart will be sharing lots of his retro lady-fronted punk dance music to keep you going all night long.


3. More great ways to support F.E.P.!

Compassion Co. has generously chosen F.E.P. as their “Featured Organization.”

During October, November, and December, they will donate 5% of every sale to us. Since Compassion Co. makes beautiful and sweatshop-free shirts, hoodies, stickers, and buttons, this is a great way to support F.E.P. and a wonderful vegan company all at the same time.

Matt Ruscigno, Food Empowerment Project supporter and vegan dietician/endurance athlete, has just a published a book on cacao and chocolate, Superfoods for Life: Cacao! More than a vegan cookbook, Matt’s book includes nutrition research and an appendix highlighting ethical issues around cacao and chocolate. He is also very kindly donating 10% of his royalties to Food Empowerment Project. Check it out!
