Thought of the Year: Go Vegan Now. Stay Vegan Forever.

This was originally published on January 2, 2017 on the Abolitionist Approach Facebook page.

**********

If you are not vegan, please go vegan. Veganism is about nonviolence. First and foremost, it’s about nonviolence to other sentient beings. But it’s also about nonviolence to the earth and nonviolence to yourself.

If animals matter morally, veganism is not an option — it is a necessity. Anything that claims to be an animal rights movement must make clear that veganism is a moral imperative.

Embracing veganism as a moral imperative and advocating for veganism as a moral imperative are, along with caring for nonhuman refugees, the most important acts of activism that you can undertake.

The World is Vegan! If you want it.

PLEASE JOIN THIS THUNDERCLAP ON NEW YEAR’S EVE TO PROMOTE VEGANISM!

We are having a Thunderclap for abolitionist veganism this Saturday, December 31, at noon. This Thunderclap will create a virtual “flash mob” of people all promoting veganism at the same time, and directing those interested to our site, How Do I Go Vegan.com, where they can get all the information they need to go and stay vegan. They can even get mentoring. And it’s all free and they will never be asked for a donation.

Here’s the way it works: go to the Thunderclap page and support the cause with your Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr accounts. You can support us with all three! Just click the red buttons:

Invitation to Webinar: Abolitionist Vegan Advocacy for 2017

On December 30, we will do a two-hour webinar focused on how YOU can become a more effective vegan advocate in 2017. We’ll start with some ideas that we hope will help you. And then we’ll answer your questions and talk with you about your experiences doing advocacy.

The only way the paradigm will shift from property to personhood is if we have a vibrant grassroots movement. We all–that includes YOU!–need to be part of that movement. The purpose of this webinar is to take a step in that much-needed direction.

Let’s make 2017 a great year for veganism. Register here. We’ll see you there!
