Werrrk! MFA Distributes 65K Pro-Veg Leaflets at Pride Events Nationwide

Every year, Mercy For Animals volunteers hit the streets in full force at LGBT pride parades around the country, bringing our message of social justice to the masses.

This June, marching behind a striking banner bearing the message “No one is free when others are oppressed, volunteers in six major cities, including Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Chicago, distributed over 65,000 leaflets, urging compassionate people to act on their values of justice and equality by choosing a vegetarian diet.

More than 350 people marched with MFA, many waving large MFA logo flags and rainbow flags.

Studies indicate that the LGBT community may be more likely than the average person to consider vegetarianism, making pride events a great place to reach out to open-minded, animal-loving people.

Since MFA’s inception over 15 years ago, the parallels between gay equality, animal rights, and other social justice movements have been an important theme in our philosophy and message. This was MFA’s 10th year marching in pride parades.
