CALL FOR ENTRIES! THE NATIONAL LAWYER’S GUILD ANIMAL RIGHTS ACTIVISM COMMITTEE WANTS YOUR VEGAN RECIPES FOR OUR SOCIAL JUSTICE COOKBOOK!
The newly-formed Animal Rights Activism Committee (ARAC) was inspired by the radical 1970’s NLG cookbook to compile Guild-member’s favorite recipes into a current social justice cookbook. The last copy of that first edition was sold at the 2013 Spring Fling auction in NYC.
The personal is political. Therefore, we recognize that each time we sit down to eat, we make not a personal choice, but a political one. The updated NLG radical cookbook will address a variety of food justice issues, including animal liberation.
As with other food justice issues, eating animals is no more a personal choice than oppressing other humans is a personal “choice”. Thus, we request that all recipes submitted are vegan. The ARAC cookbook aims to show animals as living, loving, and loved individuals, rather than as meals. Please also consider cost, convenience, and environmental issues when crafting or collecting your recipes—access to healthy, sustainable plant-based foods should not be a privilege, but a right.
Please respond privately to this email at email@example.com with your recipes by FEBRUARY 28TH.
ABOUT US: The newly-formed Animal Rights Activism Committee works end oppression and exploitation of non-human animals. The committee engages Guild members to advocate for changes in the law to recognize the rights of non-human animals, and to provide legal support and resources to animal rights activists. It works in coalition with other groups to fight—in the courts and in the streets—to liberate non-human animals.
DEADLINE EXTENSION AND REMINDER! We’d still love to get any and all awesome vegan recipes you have for our Social Justice Cookbook, and are extending the deadline another week, perhaps two! So please forward this email and send along those delicious, cruelty free recipes and we’ll compile them all into one amazing Social Justice Cookbook for all to enjoy. Please respond privately to this email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
