This Sunday in DC: Learn about the plight of farm animals!

Argh... Super upset that I will be out of town this weekend at a wedding, but I encourage folks to attend this! I recieved this email alert from FARM (Farm Animal Rights Movement), and it looks like a great event.

The alert reads:

Join Us in Promoting Compassion this Sunday!

Farm Animal Rights Movement and A Well-Fed World invite you to join us in DC this Sunday to educate the public about the plight of farmed animals. We're promoting a compassionate vegan diet in honor of the first annual Food Day.

When: Sunday, October 23rd, 12-5pm

Where: Washington, DC - Dupont Circle (Q & 20th NW); Metro: Red Line
Details: This is a free public outdoor educational event with speakers, powerful "Make the Connection" human-animal art display, large-screen videos, pay-per-view videos, and free food. The benefits of animal-free food and farming will be highlighted. Special attention will be given to the ideal nature of plant-based food and farming relative to the popular, yet inadequate, "humane" and local production of meat, eggs, dairy, and other animal products.

Join us! Stop by to check out the event or help out.

If you'd like to volunteer, e-mail

If you go, please shoot me an email and let me know how it was! I will post your responses on the blog!

Also, don't forget to stop by the Dupont Circle Farmers Market from 8:30-1 and support humane farms like Keswick Creamery, Clear Springs Creamery, Smith Meadows and Everona Dairy.
