CARE Tour - 1
Compassion for Animals Road Expeditions #1
The current state of animal rights awareness in Santa Barbara is
embarrassingly low. As a six-year vegetarian I am pleased that most Santa
Barbara restaurants are veggie-friendly, but disappointed that we do not
have a completely vegetarian restaurant in the area.
You can understand my enthusiasm around two local groups that are
hoping to change this cycle of separation. The newly formed S.B.
Vegetarian Society and the S.B. Animal Advocates are working together to
host the Compassion for Animals Road Expedition (CARE) on its trip to
Santa Barbara. CARE has brought national attention to issues concerning
nutrition, vegetarianism, animal abuse, hunting, rodeos, and factory
farming. The two main speakers for this event include Anthony Marr and
Brenda Davis. Marrís main goal is to unite animal advocates across the
county to develop concerted action. He is currently working to pass a
referendum to abolish cruel hunting, trapping, and factory-farming
practices in many states. Brenda Davis is a registered dietitian and
author of The New Becoming Vegetarian and Becoming Vegan.
