Atlanta – What: On Tuesday morning, PETA supporters will be at the polls in downtown Atlanta passing out free vegan cinnamon rolls. They’ll be urging voters to think beyond the ballot box, because everyone can vote for animal protection, the environment, and a healthier America every day simply by choosing vegan foods.
When: Tuesday, November 6, 9 a.m.
Where: 100 Ivan Allen Jr. Blvd. N.W. (at the intersection with Centennial Olympic Park Drive N.W.), Atlanta
“People can vote with their pocketbooks every time they choose what food to buy,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “PETA hopes everyone will make a smart choice and tick the vegan box.”
Among other recent developments on the vegan food front, last week, Kroger declared vegan eating a top trend for 2019—and like many other supermarkets, it now offers more meat- and dairy-free items than ever before.
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—notes that not only do vegan dishes help spare animals daily suffering and a terrifying death in today’s meat, egg, and dairy industries, they’re also free of saturated animal fat and cholesterol and go a long way toward reducing the greenhouse-gas emissions that cause climate change.
Note: PETA takes no position on any election and does not support or oppose any candidate or party.
