Yesterday I had the pleasure of representing Mercy for Animals at the JSA (Junior Statesmen of America) Spring State Political Fair in Houston, TX. Most people, even non-vegans, cringe when they see videos of factory farming and the abuse that takes place with the animals in those farms. Having a Vegan Fashion Blog I feel like it is my duty to remind others that are reading the posts I write, that this is why I write them! That’s what Vegan Fashion is; saving the animals, protecting animals and bringing awareness to others that you can still be fashionable without wearing clothes or accessories that are made out of animal products. It seems so ridiculous to me that people wear animals. Don’t get me wrong, before I was Vegan it didn’t really cross my mind like I’m sure it hasn’t crossed many minds. I am so grateful I had the opportunity to represent Mercy for Animals at this event. There were over 200 high school students from all over Texas that heard Mercy for Animals message…
Mercy For Animals is a national non-profit organization dedicated to preventing cruelty to farmed animals and promoting compassionate food choices and policies.
I challenged most of the students I encountered to not eat meat for one day a week, asked them to watch a factory farming video and gave them plenty of great information on how they can get involved with Mercy for Animals. I was pleasantly surprised to find their were students that were extremely interested in the cause, were already vegetarian looking to become Vegan and were in fact, ready to take on the “No Meat one Day a Week!” challenge.
