March 2011 Successes
  • We have been stepping up our campaign against cruel foie gras nationally, with protests and victories in California, Oregon at Georgia! Over ten restaurants have removed this product of animal torture just in the past month after being contacted by APRL!
  • We also reached thousands of people in March with pro-veg leaflets at Indiefest, St. Patrick's Fest, Meatout at People's Co-op, Meatout at Jimbo's, as well as passing out leaflets in downtown San Diego and Hoover High School.
  • A San Diego woman sought out our booth at St. Patrick's Day to tell us that she went vegan after meeting our volunteers at last year's festival. New APRL intern Stephanie Vasquez also became a vegan animal advocate after APRL representatives spoke in her class at Crawford High School last year. Since then, she has convinced her family and one of her friends to go veg with her!
  • Legislation to ban sale and possession of shark fins in California has passed out of its first legislative committee. Congratulations to San Diego's Judy Ki for her tireless efforts on this! 
Above: over 25 local activists joined a foie gras protest APRL held at Beaker and Flask in Portland on 3/26/11!
