Legislators Going Veg

Three California legislators are taking the VegWeek challenge and giving up meat for a week.

The first annual Los Angeles VegWeek kicks off this Saturday, July 11, and has not only gained support from California vegans, but from a few California legislators as well. As a part of the celebration, Compassion Over Killing—the event’s sponsor—encourages participants to pledge a week of vegetarianism. Congressman Brad Sherman (pictured above), Assemblymember Pedro Nava, and Assemblymember Ted Lieu have all joined the efforts. All three legislators have reputations of advocating for environmental standards and animal protection. Assemblymember Nava said, “This event will help to raise awareness and encourage a more compassionate diet and lifestyle.”
