Orlando – From Seattle to Massachusetts (and just about everywhere in between), music fans are flocking to the Vans Warped Tour, where they’ll see not only artists like Andy Black, Hawthorne Heights, and Falling in Reverse but also Orlando resident Tori Kravitz, who’s on the tour crew for peta2, PETA’s youth division—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat.”
In dozens of cities, she’ll help run peta2’s “Not Your Mom, Not Your Milk” booth, which uses interactive games, stickers, wristbands, and more to challenge visitors to consider why it’s as unnatural for humans to drink cow’s milk as it is for cats to drink giraffe’s milk—and why it’s cruel to tear calves away from their mothers so that humans can drink their milk instead.
Kravitz, a lifelong Florida resident who’s now a broadcast journalism major at the University of Central Florida, could share how the tour is something of a homecoming for her: A peta2 flier that she saw at the 2010 Warped Tour inspired her to visit the group’s website, watch the “Meet Your Meat” documentary, and go vegetarian on the spot—with a little help from peta2’s recipes, blog posts, and more. Now, she’s a committed vegan who can’t wait to help other music lovers across the country make the same switch!
