Your Weekly Click-Through Reminders
“The easyVegan Weekend Activist” is a weekly roundup of animal and environmental advocacy action alerts, campaign updates, carnivals, contests, newsletters, petitions, upcoming events and miscellaneous resources, posted every weekend at easyvegan.info. Follow the links provided in order to learn more and take action!
For the time being, the weekly newsletter-esque format will replace the near-daily link roundups I previously posted under the title “easyVegan Link Sanctuary.” Hopefully, this condensed, once-weekly “newsletter” will free up some time so that I can perform more meaningful blogging. If you have any questions or comments about the new format, please drop me a line in the comments section!
While my primary focus is non-human animals and the environment in which they live, I will cover human rights issues as well, especially as they relate to animal and environmental welfare. (For example, while reproductive rights is typically seen as a feminist or women’s issue, the growing global human population does have environmental consequences. In this vein, access to family planning resources has a tangible impact on the environment – an environment we share with non-human animals.)
This link roundup is meant as a jumping-off point for you, the reader, to take further action and learn more about the issues presented here. I link, you decide!
If you have a link you’d like included, please drop me a line at easyvegan [at] gmail.com – or leave it in the comments! Feedback is also appreciated, particularly as it relates to the links included above. I’ve tried my best to identify and name any speciesism, sexism, racism, classism, homophobia, sizeism, etc. which may appear in the resources above; if, however, I’ve overlooked something, please leave a note in the comments. It’s not my desire to fight one form of oppression by engaging in another.
If you’d like to get on the above organizations’ e-mail lists, I’ve compiled a full list of all my resources on the Get Active! page.
You can also follow me on Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, delicious, Flickr, Amazon and LibraryThing.
