Mercy for Animals talk at Sweet Dreams Organic Bakery and Cafe

Please join us at Sweet Dreams Bakery and Cafe for delicious food and a wonderful talk given by Heather Patrick of the organization Mercy for Animals! A little bit about MFA... About Mercy For Animals Mercy For Animals is a national 501(c)(3) non-profit animal advocacy organization. Founded in 1999 and over 35,000 members and supporters strong, MFA works to create a society where animals are treated with the respect and compassion they so rightly deserve. MFA believes... non-human animals are irreplaceable individuals with morally significant interests and hence rights. This includes the right to live free from unnecessary suffering and exploitation. MFA is dedicated to... to establishing and defending the rights of all animals. Over 99% of cruelty to animals in the United States occurs at the hands of the meat, dairy, and egg industries - which confine, mutilate, and slaughter over 9 billion animals each year. As such, MFA primarily focuses on farmed animal advocacy and promoting cruelty-free food choices. MFA works to.... be a voice for animals through proactive consumer education and advertising campaigns, research and undercover investigations, rescues, working with news media, and grassroots activism. Check out their website
here.. Many of you have expressed interest in animal activism and an interest in a vegetarian lifestyle. This is a GREAT way to learn more about both!! Learn more about MFA and ways that you can help out and become a volunteer!! No pressure, though- just want to learn? that's totally fine!
wink The place is ours for the evening so it should be great- friendly, enjoyable and enlightening! Bring your friends so they can learn more about how they can help the lives of animals (while enjoying some FABULOUS food and desserts, of course!!) Want to check out the menu before you get there?
