    Thank you for organizing this event, Linda, and for your incredible work in advancing the cause of veganism! Our vegan social justice movement is about doing no harm, but it is also urgently about concern for future generations. Yesterday, Free From Harm posted a critical article we should all read and then send or cross post to everyone we know, family, friends, coworkers, EVERYONE! I sent this to my kids yesterday:

    Urgent reading, if we care at all about [my grandson], his generation, and his generation's offspring:

    http://freefromharm.org/agriculture-environment/cop-19-and-climate-change-eating-ourselves-out-of-a-problem/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+FreeFromHarm+%28Free+from+Harm%29

    There is a solution to climate change, and its devastating effects, and it is found at the end of our forks: Go plant-based, TODAY! For my grandkids and yours.

      Jan.. You are always supportive of our compassionate movement and I am just one itty bitty person and so need people like you to help others know how their food choices can help or hurt animals, people and our earth!! Thank you for your unending dedication to end suffering!

      Also, great timing on do no harm as I will give a talk on how our grandchildren and great grand children will not have enough water, land, and clean air if humans do not change their food choices to vegan!!

    Followup:

    Thanks Mom, N. and I have already begun turning to a more plant-based diet for a number of reasons, and this gives us yet another. I had no idea that the animal agriculture industry was such a big contributor to human-induced GHG. Watching out for this generation and those that follow. Thanks, J.

    You are most welcome and I am glad that you appreciate how important this issue is. Far beyond its intense cruelty to animals, the whole "meat-, egg-, and dairy-" complex is a powerful, moneyed industry that will do anything to keep consumers in the dark and keep the profits rolling in, including lying to consumers about the devastating environmental impacts of factory farming. It is all carefully concealed, if not flat-out denied. The only way to combat their lies and deceit is to become educated and refuse to take part. That means, of course, voting with our dollars and not purchasing their products. Love, Mom

    This was a wonderful, not very graphic but educational and inspiring movie and we had such wonderful and compassionate people there! Thank you for coming to this particular movie!! This helps all get veganism, the only non specist movement moving forward. It is so exciting to see how quickly our vegan social justice movement is spreading!! Thank you to all the wonderful people who came and hopefully this film can help us all discuss just how speciesim is as horrible as racism, sexism, etc.!! OUR vegan social justice movement is way more than a diet!! It is about DO NO HARM, to all animals as best we can!!

    I will wait for the next screening as well. I am very unfamiliar with Rancho Cordova and so I won't make it.
    I will look for events a little closer to my area.

    Hi Wendy, do you work Friday evenings? I will let you know when we can screen it again...I pay the director/producer when we screen it.

      Hello Linda, thanks for your response. I work evenings and am off on the weekends....my schedule changes in about a month and I will have evenings and weekends off....so hopefully I will be able to see it then. I am sure it is an AMAZING movie and I can't wait to get to see it. :-)

    I am not a vegan at this point but into animal rights and other things this group is about. I look forward to meeting like minded people. BTW How graphic is the movie, I don't like really graphic stuff either

    November 11, 2013

    • adrienne r.

      Hi Terry. this is not a graphic movies it is very unformative and I highly encourage you to bring anyone you know. however I will let you know what that almost all of our events have to do with animals used for the meat , dairy and egg industry, but not limited to we also do events that are against fur, leather, wool, circuses, aquatic sea animal parks and biomedical research. Hope to see you there!

I have been vegan 23 years but this is what I will use to help open hearts and minds of other unawakened persons!! Please I encourage all to bring friends and family along!!!! Let us help get veganism moving by bringing people you know!!!
