I Heart (MFA) NYC

This past Saturday, advocates with Mercy For Animals made a special visit to northern New York to participate in the New York Capital Region Vegetarian Expo, a day-long convention celebrating vegetarianism, hosted by the Albany Vegetarian Network. The Expo is the first in the Capital Region area to bring together and promote the global health benefits of green sustainable living, environmental awareness, and compassion for animals.

MFA was one of dozens of vegetarian-friendly organizations and businesses exhibiting at this popular event, which included nationally renowned speakers and attracted visitors from throughout New York State and beyond.

More than 80 people attended an educational and entertaining talk on vegan nutrition hosted by Dr. Michael Greger, Director of Public Health and Animal Agriculture at The Humane Society of the United States. Dr. Greger engaged the audience with an innovative quiz-show format; the audience enjoyed healthy vegan snacks while learning about the latest news in cutting-edge nutrition research.
