Civic-Minded 'Birds' Will Make the Rounds at Reno Polling Stations to Bring Heart- and Animal-Friendly Message to Primary Voters
For Immediate Release: June, 7 2010
Contact: Amanda Fortino 757-622-7382
Reno, Nev. -- Wearing chicken costumes and holding signs reading, "Vote for Health--Go Vegan" and "Vote for Compassion--Go Vegan," PETA members will hand out vegetarian/vegan starter kits at the Procter R. Hug High School polling station in Reno as residents line up to vote in the Nevada primary on Tuesday. The big "birds" will also visit other Reno polling stations throughout the day.
When: Tuesday, June 8, 12 noon
Where: Procter R. Hug High School, 2880 Sutro St. (near the intersection of Sutro Street and Blazing Star Drive), Reno
"No matter which side of the debate we're on, we can all take control of the health-care crisis one forkful at a time by going vegan," says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "And with all the delicious vegan choices that are now available, there's never been a better time to make the switch to a kinder and greener diet."
Vegans are significantly trimmer, on average, than meat-eaters, and they are less likely to suffer from heart disease, cancer, strokes, and diabetes. Also, according to Environmental Defense, if every American skipped one meal of chicken per week and substituted vegetarian foods instead, the carbon dioxide savings would be the same as taking more than half a million cars off U.S. roads. And each year, the meat industry confines billions of animals to severely crowded spaces and subjects them to mutilations, injuries, and a terrifying death.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
