Columbus, Ohio – Amid the dairy industry’s attempt to rebrand July as National Ice Cream Month, on Friday PETA will host a giveaway of Trader Joe’s Hold the Dairy! Vegan Chocolate Mini Cones beneath the group’s new sky-high appeal reminding everyone that animals used for their milk eventually go to slaughter and calves in the dairy industry are stolen from their mothers within a day of birth.

When:    Friday, July 14, 2 p.m.

Where:    3774 W. Broad St. (near the intersection with Viotis Drive), Columbus

“Vegan ice cream is refreshing on a hot day and comes with none of the cruelty or cholesterol of dairy,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA’s giveaway will give everyone the scoop on delicious desserts that let calves stay with their mothers.”

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview, and offers a free vegan starter kit on its website. For more information, please visit PETA.org, listen to The PETA Podcast, or follow the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
