Pittsburgh, PA, March 22, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- The Pittsburgh Vegan Association (PVA) announces a Meatout day every March 20th, an official proclamation from Mayor Peduto and the Office of the Mayor in the city of Pittsburgh. The primary purpose of PVA is to advocate for veganism in the Pittsburgh region. One way to think about a first motion toward becoming plant-based is participating in MeatOut Day. First organized in 1985 by the Farm Animal Rights Movement to spark "...a national conversation questioning [the] consumption of animal products," (from https://meatout.org/) MeatOut Day has been proclaimed in multiple cities, including, as of today, PVA's hometown of Pittsburgh. Other animal rights and vegan groups have since hosted the tradition, encouraging people to give veganism a try starting with one day - the first day of spring. This year, MeatOut Day was March 20th.
PVA invites citizens to take part in MeatOut Day - and to make subsequent, ongoing goals to leave animals off of their plate. If someone believes that animals have worth and value, what that person can do is avoid unnecessarily harming them. Eating vegan can actually be affordable, nutritious, delicious, and even easy. PVA invites everyone to participate in MeatOut Day with them and to consider going vegan. If someone needs resources or help, they can go to MeatOut's website or contact PVA at pavegan.org.
