Nuturing Liberation: Mother’s Day Benefit for Post and Present Vegan Prisoners.

We are pleased to announce a fundraising effort for past and present vegan political prisoners. While incarcerated, food that is free of animal products can be difficult to obtain; two common items- peanut butter and oatmeal, usually need to be purchased with a prisoner’s commissary. In addition to this, once a vegan prisoner is released, more restrictions exist in finding employment and achieving financial stability. If you’ve taken part in the job search recently, you’ll know the hardship this causes. From now until Tuesday, May 7th we are taking orders for donation packages that contain vegan chocolates, mother’s day cards, and more sweet goods/services.
