Bay Area vegans! Check out the Corporate Control of the Food System Symposium at UC Berkeley! It’s tonight, from 6:30 to 9* at 60 Evans on the Cal campus, and they’ll have speakers from the Rainforest Action Network, Food First, the Coalition to Fight Factory Farming, Pesticide Action Network North America, Take Back the Tap, the Sustainable Economies Law Center, and the Berkeley Student Food Collective.
Go get educated! As our pal (and event speaker) Katie Cantrell says:

The influence of corporations extends beyond Wall Street to the very food that we eat. It’s time to take action with our bellies! Reclaim your plate by learning where your food comes from and who it supports, and by eating FREE delicious sustainable food!!

Be there! For more information, check out the event on Facebook.
*Yes, 6:30 to 9, the flyer is wrong.

BART Blue Sky wants your vote! Let’s help veganize BART!  »


Vegansaurus loves public transportation! Sometimes in theory, mostly in practice. Some of us spend upward of seven hours a week on public transportation, half of that on good old, smelly old BART. And yes, we have our music and yes, we have our reading material and yes, we have our people-watching, but what we could really use are some non-insane onboard ads. (Insanity Wolf for Kixeye was funny the first time only.) Here is your chance to help us make things nicer for us and the animals, hooray!

BART Blue Sky is holding an ad contest to benefit one of their nonprofit partners, which include the Coalition to Fight Factory Farming, the Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture, Earth Justice, and the San Francisco Vegetarian Society. All you have to do is vote, via Facebook, for the nonprofit of your choice, and you could win a $500 Clipper card, a folding bike, or a $100 BART card. And if you don’t want those things, maybe vote anyway, because the three nonprofits that get the most votes will win nearly $45,000 worth of free advertising space on BART!

One vote per person, and the contest is open through May 4. Tell your friends! Vote for some awesome vegans!
