We're bringing our vital work for animals to millions of New Yorkers. Through grassroots activism, education and advertising campaigns, research and undercover investigations, and work with news media, MFA will broaden our efforts to open consumers' hearts and minds to the plight of farmed animals and empower them to make humane food choices.
It is also with great honor that we introduce you to Lydia Chaudhry, MFA's New York Campaign Coordinator. Lydia will be leading MFA's efforts in all of these areas. She is a veteran of over a decade of outreach work focused on promoting ethical veganism, as well as a graduate of the chef's training program of The Natural Gourmet Institute in New York. In addition to her activism on behalf of numerous animal advocacy groups, she has also taught vegan cooking.
With this expansion we are also opening a New York Advocacy Center, centrally located in Manhattan. Now, with our new Advocacy Center, we'll be able to do more than ever to involve more activists in our groundbreaking work to protect animals. Check out these photos of the Advocacy Center (computers and office chairs coming soon).
Our new center is so much more than an office; it will serve as a vital resource and clearinghouse of opportunities, information, and support for activists interested in protecting farmed animals! We will offer:
Please consider attending one of our upcoming Volunteer Orientation Sessions. For your convenience, we already have two sessions planned; pick a date that works with your schedule. Click here for all the details.
