"Farm Sanctuary is the nation's leading farm animal protection organization. Since incorporating in 1986, Farm Sanctuary has worked to expose and stop cruel practices of the "food animal" industry through research and investigations, legal and institutional reforms, public awareness projects, youth education, and direct rescue and refuge efforts. Farm Sanctuary shelters in Watkins Glen, New York, and Orland, Calif., provide lifelong care for hundreds of rescued animals, who have become ambassadors for farm animals everywhere by educating visitors about the realities of factory farming. The Walk for Farm Animals helps fund and raise awareness about these vital, education and advocacy efforts."

I love Farm Sanctuary -- I don't know much about them except for what I saw on Peaceable Kingdom but what I saw was awesome.

I won't be going this year but hopefully next year. It seems like it would be loads of fun. Have you been on a walk before? I watched that video and bookmarked it -- I love the last half of it. I read the comments too and it's great that most supported the video. That one 13 year old sent $20 to Farm Sanctuary after watching the video.

I went last year and will probably be going again this year (don't have much reason not to seeing as the walk starts 3 blocks from my place)

I just got back from the Portland, OR walk!

We got a great turnout and overall it was a really positive march.

Start time: 11 AM End time: 1 PM

We had "Radical Cheerleaders" making up vegan chants, people handing out Farm Sanctuary leaflets and vegan recipes, and the majority of us holding up signs.

Great day to march considering Saturday Market was going on at the time and it was also real sunny.

A raffle was held at the very end with lots of vegan goodies, but i didn't win anything.



I highly recommend attending a Farm Sanctuary walk near you, all the donations go to a good cause and you have the opportunity to meet like-minded people in a positive environment!

Most definitely. I'm going to save the flyer as a reminder to check next year (because heaven knows I'll forget)

It's not even offered here in Louisiana. How disappointing!
