Let's Keep the Pressure On Ben & Jerry's

After months of campaigning and collecting nearly 30,000 petition signatures, FARM was thrilled to hear that Ben & Jerry's is moving closer to launching vegan ice cream! Details are sparse, but the company tells us they're targeting a 2016 launch date and that we're likely to have multiple flavors to choose from ... and they'll be made with either coconut or almond milk.

Help keep them on track for 2016 -- sign the petition today!


FARM Honors Dear Friend Lisa Shapiro

Lisa Shapiro, one of the best friends the vegan movement and animals ever had, passed away last Thursday. Lisa was a devoted supporter of FARM, Vegan Outreach, and other farmed animal organizations and activists. She was instrumental in bringing a number of plant-based meats, milks, and related products to American supermarkets.

While we miss Lisa terribly, we will use her shining life as an inspiration for our continuing work. The annual award presented at the Animal Rights National Conference to an outstanding young activist has been renamed the Lisa Shapiro Young Animal Activist Award. Contributions toward the fund may be made here. An informal memorial service for Lisa, open to all, will be held Sunday, August 2nd during the conference.

Read a special remembrance from Tofurky founder, Seth Tibbot.
