— At a special reception at South Florida's gourmet vegan restaurant
Sublime on Sunday, April 15, PETA recognized Tarboro native Meggan Anderson for
fearlessly doing whatever it takes—including stripping down in the middle of a
Russian winter—to draw attention to animal rights. Anderson received PETA's Nanci
Alexander Award, given in honor of Sublime owner and Animal Rights
Foundation of Florida founder Nanci Alexander.
Anderson's award was presented by supermodel and Dancing
With the Stars alumna Joanna Krupa. Other guests in attendance
included pro surfer Karina Petroni, Telemundo's Natalia Villaveces,
and El Talismán's Pablo Azar. Photos from the event are available here.

Anderson—whose volunteer efforts have appeared in photographs in newspapers
around the world—has spoken volumes in behalf of animals," says PETA
President Ingrid E. Newkirk. "PETA is proud to recognize this brave young
woman for doing whatever it takes to bring animal rights issues into the
Anderson's participation in PETA demonstrations—from
dressing as a bikini-clad "Lettuce Lady" to promote vegan meals to
crashing the stage at a fur showcase at Bloomingdale's—has landed her
photographs on E! and Jimmy Kimmel Live!, among many other media
outlets. And when Anderson stripped down for a "Bare
Skin, Don't Wear Skin" anti-fur protest in Moscow, she was arrested—and
she ended up on the front page of The Moscow Times. Anderson has also
volunteered to speak out against abusing exotic animals in the circus, KFC's
cruel chicken-slaughter methods, and many other issues.
