Landmark U.K. Law Would Ensure Equality for Vegans

While vegans are busy fighting for animal equality, members of the U.K. Parliament have been pushing for vegan equality. Under a proposed landmark law that has been passed by the House of Commons and is currently under consideration in the House of Lords, U.K. vegans would officially be granted the same freedom of expression that the government currently gives religious groups. The Equality Bill—drafted by Harriet Harman, the leader of the House of Commons and the minister for women and equality—would require public institutions such as schools to actively consider how their policies affect people whose beliefs affect their day-to-day choices.

With this push to end discrimination, the next logical step for British citizens is clear: Join PETA U.K. and help put an end to every brand of prejudice.
