It's been 4 years, 14000 messages/posts, and about 385
events since Bay Area Vegetarians, aka BAVeg, started
in October 2001. Whether you're new to BAVeg, or been
with us since the beginning, please join us to
celebrate our 4th Anniversary (or Birthday) on SUNDAY,
Oct. 2nd at 2 pm.
BAVeg is a diverse group. We have events all over the
Bay Area, as well as different types of events, from
social to educational to advocacy. In keeping with
this theme, this year's party is more than just

3) Raise Funds for Bay Area Vegetarians to continue
our efforts to promote vegetarianism in the Bay Area
and support/connect the vegetarian and animal rights

factory farms and slaughterhouses. For this occasion,

changes were a direct result of a tireless 3 year
campaign by Viva!USA led by lauren Ornelas.
lauren will discuss, from an activists perspective,
the behind-the-scenes work of investigating,
launching, maintaining, and hopefully winning a
campaign for farmed animals. Viva!USA is a Viva! is a
dynamic non-profit organization campaigning on behalf
of animals killed for food. They do investigations of
factory farms and then produce campaign materials for
students and activists, helping people change to a
