In 2010, I resolve to ramp up the number of letters to the editor pertaining to animal issues I write. There are so many ways to bring animal issues to the forefront in response to an article. For example, if you encounter a piece about children’s health, you have an opportunity to shed light on the Child Nutrition Act, suggesting that children participating in the National School Lunch Program have access to more plant-based foods.
In 2009, approximately 10 billion land animals were killed for food in this country alone. Though we’re gaining traction in many ways, we cannot lose sight of the multitudes who continue to suffer, nor can we forget that they are relying on us to speak up for them.
With the new year approaching, what will you do to speak up for farm animals? Check out our Tools & Resources for some ideas, including everything from tabling or leafleting to organizing a benefit rock concert for our feathered and furry friends.
Then, enter our contest by letting us know what your New Year’s resolutions for the animals will be. We will randomly select a winner, who will become the proud owner of a snazzy Farm Sanctuary hoodie. The contest ends on January 4, and the winner will be notified by January 20.
