Come Celebrate
It’s been 4 years and 385 events since Bay Area Vegetarians, aka BAVeg, started in October 2001.

Whether you’re new to BAVeg, or been with us since the beginning, please join us to celebrate our 4th Anniversary (or Birthday) on Saturday, Oct. 2nd at 2 pm.

BAVeg is a diverse group, and we have events all over the Bay Area, from social to educational to advocacy.

In keeping with that theme, this year’s party is more than just celebrating 4 wonderful years and eating delicious vegan foods. It’s about –

1) Connecting and supporting like-minded people and working together towards our goal of promoting vegetarianism

2) Celebrating what we have accomplished together, and what is still to come
3) Raise Funds for Bay Area Vegetarians to continue our efforts to promote vegetarianism in the Bay Area and support/connect the vegetarian and animal rights community.

Schedule:

Vegan Food Party from 2 to 7 pm

4:30 pm – Volunteer Appreciation and Advocacy Rewards Program

From 5 pm to 6 pm, as part of our Compassionate Living Program, we’ll have a special presentation in honor of World Farmed Animals Day:

“Campaigning for Farmed Animals: the Whole Story”
a talk by lauren Ornelas, Viva!USA

It was headline news in USA Today and mentioned across the nation by Newsweek and other news channels when when Whole Foods Market adopted strict guidelines for its “meat”, dairy, and egg suppliers, and John Mackey, CEO of Whole Foods, revealed he’d gone vegan. These changes were a direct result of a tireless 3 year campaign by Viva!USA led by lauren Ornelas.

lauren will discuss, from an activists perspective, the behind-the-scenes work of investigating, launching, maintaining, and hopefully winning a campaign for farmed animals.

Viva!USA is a Viva! is a dynamic non-profit organization campaigning on behalf of animals killed for food. They do investigations of factory farms and then produce campaign materials for students and activists, helping people change to a veggie diet. Please visit their website for more information.
