Don't miss the July 31 episode of National Geographic Channel's new series Inside: Secret America as Peabody Award-winning journalists Mariana Van Zeller and Darren Foster go undercover with Mercy For Animals investigators into some of the country's largest farms.
Titled "Animal Undercover," the episode features MFA investigators "Pete," who worked at a Burger King dairy supplier in Idaho, and "Jane," who worked at a Butterball turkey factory farm in North Carolina. Both of these landmark investigations exposed abuse so horrific that multiple workers were charged and convicted of criminal cruelty to animals.
Van Zeller and Foster also interview Matt Rice, MFA's director of investigations, about the factory farming industry's un-American efforts to silence whistleblowers and keep its criminal activities hidden from public view.
Welcome to The Boulder (and Beyond!) Vegan Meetup!
Join us and meet fellow Vegans and others who are interested in living a more healthful, sustainable and compassionate lifestyle.
The Boulder (and Beyond!) Vegan meetup promotes a lifestyle free from animal products in order to benefit human health, animals, and the environment. We strive to educate people about the powerful (and well researched) effects our food choices have on all life on Earth, and we encourage a shift toward a delicious and wholesome plant based diet. It has never been easier, more delicious and more urgent to shift away from animal agriculture, and we are here to support you in those efforts. Join an amazing group of people, change your life and help change the world. Our events include monthly potlucks, restaurant outings, hikes, vegan-friendly happy hours, yoga nights, movie nights, workouts, and concerts. Have amazingly delicious meals, share your favorite plant based/cruelty free recipes, keep your body healthy and fit, and build a supportive community. Veg curious are welcome and will no doubt be amazed at the abundance and deliciousness of vegan meals! And worry not if you aren't a culinary whiz - there are SO many vegan foods, prepared and otherwise, available at all supermarkets- call if you need help figuring out what to bring.
This groups spans all ages (from days old to 88) and is full of both vegans and pre-vegans and everyone in between.;-)
Personally, I've met some of the most awesome people through the Boulder (and Beyond!) Vegan Meetup, and I hope others have as well.
I look forward to building a wonderful community with all of you. Children of of all ages are always welcome.
