Yes on CA Prop 12!

Please spread the word to vote Yes on 12 to protect millions of farm animals in California. And if you live in California, be sure to vite for the animals on Tuesday!

From the Farm Sanctuary:

If California Prop 12 passes, it will help prevent some of the worst forms of cruel confinement of animals on farms in California and beyond. Although this measure won’t end factory farming, it will criminalize some of the most egregious industry practices and will ban the sale of certain animal derived consumer products in California. On November 6, vote #Yeson12, and SHARE this to encourage your friends in California to do the same! More at: https://bit.ly/2NnvU65. Yes on Prop 12 – Prevent Cruelty California

“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor,”

~Desmond Tutu
Tutu also penned the forward to the forthcoming Global Guide to Animal Protection edited by Andrew Linzey, for which Tutu writes,

I have seen firsthand how injustice gets overlooked when the victims are powerless or vulnerable, when they have no one to speak up for them and no means of representing themselves to a higher authority. Animals are in precisely that position. Unless we are mindful of their interests and speak out loudly on their behalf, abuse and cruelty go unchallenged.

“Aristotle’s ladder of nature is not just being flattened; it is being transformed into a bush with many branches. This is no insult to human superiority. It is long-overdue recognition that intelligent life is not something for us to seek in the outer reaches of space but is abundant right here on earth, under our noses.”
~Frans de Waal
