A Veterinarian Fights to End Massive Cruel Extermination of Pigs!Your Support Is Needed: California Healthy School Meals Bill
In California in January of 2022, AB 558, the Child Nutrition Act of 2022, authored by Assemblymember Adrin Nazarian and cosponsored by Social Compassion in Legislation, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, and Friends of the Earth, which incentivizes K-12 public schools across the state to offer healthier, climate-friendly plant-based meals and beverages, passed the California Assembly Education Committee by a vote of 5-0. Under the grant program set up by the bill, schools could apply to receive additional state funding for serving a plant-based entrée and plant-based milk. Visit SocialCompassioninLegislation.org to get on the team. Visit UnchainedTV,com for hundreds of healthy, low-carbon-footprint, plant-based recipes. “AB 558, “The Childhood Nutrition Act of 2022,” passed its first hurdle after it passed in the Education Committee with a 5 to 0 vote. The Childhood Nutrition Act of 2022 will seek to improve the quality of food our kids eat while reducing greenhouse gas emissions through incentivizing healthy, all-inclusive diets. This bill will also assist school districts to adequately address the hunger needs of younger children who are not yet of school-age to have access to food, specifically breakfast, to guarantee that they are fed the most important meal of the day. As the bill moves forward in the process, we are excited to continue fighting for Childhood Nutrition!” stated Assemblymember Nazarian. Multiple studies show that a plant-based diet is more sustainable and environmentally friendly. Shifting to more plant-based options reduce our carbon footprint by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and requires less land and water for food production. “California serves an astounding 540 million school lunches each year. The policies that the State implements around what foods are served has an enormous impact not only on our students’ health, but also, and less obviously, an equally enormous impact on our environment and climate change, stated Nickolaus Sackett, Director of Legislative Affairs for cosponsor Social Compassion in Legislation. By creating incentives for schools to reduce the carbon footprint of half a billion meals, we will see a massive and immediate impact in our State’s fight against climate change.” While numerous school districts across the state want to increase plant-based offerings, many face cost barriers since animal-based foods and cow’s milk are heavily subsidized by the federal government relative to plant-based options. More and more people my age understand that if you love animals, you don't eat them. But it can be hard to find something to eat at school, said Genesis Butler, Social Compassion in Legislation Board Member, who, at age 12, became one of the youngest people ever to give a TED Talk. I'm glad California is giving us more options to help us, animals and the earth.

Award-winning public health nutritionist, 35-year vegan changemaker, and best-selling author Tracye McQuirter, MPH, is thrilled to announce the 10 Million Black Vegan Women Movement, a revolutionary public health intervention that will change the health paradigm of black women now and for generations to come.

The initiative also includes a 6-Week Vegan Transition course and an ongoing Group Coaching program, to help black women maintain their vegan lifestyles with ease and support. “Black women experience the highest rates of chronic diseases, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes and cancer, but most of these illnesses can be prevented and often reversed by eating healthy plant-based foods. We’ve seen the devastating impact these pre-existing conditions can have, especially during the pandemic. The 10 Million Black Vegan Women Movement gives black women the tools we need to take back control of our health,” said Tracye McQuirter, MPH.

White Coat Waste, a non-profit dedicated to ending useless and tortuous taxpayer-funded experiments by the U.S. government, has scored a major victory that will end unimaginable suffering for many primates. as WCD puts it, A scathing July 2019 internal Veterans Administration report obtained by WCW via the Freedom of Information Act found that the Minneapolis VA was abusing monkeys by restricting water to primates for extensive periods of time and not keeping track of how long! Additionally, the VA found that laboratory staff didn’t know how to prepare, label, or store the PCP that was being given to the primates. You read that right... our government was injecting primates with PCP, AKA ANGEL DUST! But here's the GOOD NEWS we will discuss in this broadcast. WCW reports, Last year, the project was extended for several more years and approved to use even more monkeys, but we’ve just uncovered that the experiments were ended early. Army veteran and Waste Warrior Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL), who has been leading efforts to cut wasteful VA animal testing, confirmed the win directly with the VA. Here's the petition you can sign, joining thousands of other caring citizens to end this barbaric practice forever: https://bit.ly/3hMQAqp There's more good news out of Europe regarding animal experimentation. LiveKindly reports: The European Parliament adopted a resolution vote calling for the European Commission to develop a definitive action plan to bring an end to lab animal testing. This should clearly identify key milestones and targets in order to ensure and incentivize meaningful progress. The plan to transition away from animal testing to ethical, more effective, more modern methods was adopted by an overwhelming majority! Are we seeing the beginning of the end of the medieval practice of animal experimentation? Let's find out now. JaneUnChained.com's Jane Velez-Mitchell conducts this fascinating interview.

The Supreme Court of the United States has rejected the meat industry's challenge to a California law prohibiting cruel confinement of farmed animals! This is a HUGE victory for animal rights and the animals themselves! On June 28, 2021, the Supreme Court of the United States rejected the North American Meat Institute’s (NAMI) challenge to California’s Proposition 12. Proposition 12 is due to go into effect on January 1, 2022. It strengthens existing California law to ban the intensive confinement of egg-laying chickens, mother pigs and calves used in the veal industry. The law also prohibits the sale in California of eggs, pork and veal from facilities that confine animals in cruel cages. Voters adopted Proposition 12 in 2018. When NAMI sued California in an attempt to stop the state from implementing Proposition 12, Animal Outlook voluntarily intervened in the lawsuit on behalf of the State of California to defend Proposition 12 and protect the millions of hens, pigs and calves used to produce meat and eggs sold in California. Animal Outlook was joined by Animal Equality, Animal Legal Defense Fund, Compassion in World Farming, Farm Sanctuary, the Humane League and the Humane Society of the United States. In rejecting NAMI’s challenge, the Supreme Court upheld an appellate court’s denial of NAMI’s claim that Proposition 12 violated the United States Constitution. The Supreme Court’s decision affirms the right of states to pass laws protecting animals, public health and safety. While an appeal in a second lawsuit against Proposition 12, brought by the National Pork Producers Council, still looms, the Supreme Court’s decision against NAMI is a massive victory for animals. AnimalOutlook.org is a great site to visit to get involved and learn more. Here to discuss all this is Animal Outlook's legal counsel Will Lowrey.
