The Taking Action for Animals conference is just two weeks away, and we’ve got 30 passes to give away. With speakers from PETA, HSUS, Farm Sanctuary, Compassion Over Killing, and more, you don’t want to miss this powerful and motivating two-day event. How do you get one of those passes? Simple, forward PETA’s Australia’s Secret Shame video to your friends and family using this form. We’ll pick the 30 people who send the video to the most people and hook them up with a pass to the conference in DC. Keep in mind that winners will receive a pass to the conference, but will be responsible for travel expenses to Washington, DC and a hotel for the weekend.
So, who is planning on going to the conference? We can’t wait to meet you all there!
On the Road
Summer is under way, and peta2 staffers are on the road with a variety of tours, including Sounds of the Underground, Alkaline Trio with Rise Against, and Warped Tour. At Warped, Jason spent the day skating with Jen O’Brien and Laban at Dave Berthgold’s place, and asked us to tell all of you that are coming to the Long Beach show tomorrow to stop by our tent for an autograph signing with Goldfinger. Don’t forget to wear your favorite peta2 T-Shirt so we can give you a free silicone bracelet!
Oh yeah, before I forget, here’s a photo from our buddies Stretch Arm Strong taken at their show in Athens, Greece. Note the sweet peta2 stencil.


Tuesdays Against Torture
Starting in July, activists will be spending the first Tuesday of each month protesting Wet Seal’s continued support of the cruel fur industry. This new arm of the campaign known simply as “Tuesdays Against Torture” is sure to get the attention of shoppers, not to mention Wet Seal executives, but we need your help to make it a success. Next Tuesday, July 5th, plan on doing something, big or small, to speak up for the animals suffering on fur farms for stores like Wet Seal. You could print out leaflets and hand them out in front of the mall or go into the store nearest you to complain to the manager and fill out a customer comment card.


Whatever you do, be sure to e-mail us at WetSealSucks@peta.org to tell us about it!

I’m an only child. 8. I knit. 9. I like to press flowers. 10. I like to shrink potato chip bags. I have a tattoo on my wrist that says peace in braille. I feel like I should've been a teen in the 60’s-70’s. I have rainbow gauges in my ears. I’m FTM transgender but only identify as a gay male. I will write to anybody! I love fast food, glass blowing, making solar sensitive paper prints, ceramics, making friendship bracelets, tie dying, decorating my room, shopping online and off (but mostly online), cuddling with my Cockapoo named Mickey,eating candy, making things, fashion, & going to the mall. I can’t cook to save my life. I enjoy Netflix, crafts, & making people laugh, I am generous and enjoy Oldies. Green is my favourite colour. I hate the colour orange. Halloween is my favourite holiday. I’m addicted to playing Kardashian on my Ipod and using Instagram. I want to travel a ton one day, learn German, drive and lifeguard, and be an elementary school art teacher. I collect international stamps, coins, postcards, Betty and Veronica Archie Comics, kawaii stuff, cameos, *stickers*, and trinkets (I pick things off the ground, I’m a klepto like that). I write in a diary everyday. I hate candy corn. I have two cactus plants. I have Facebook, Snapchat, Tumblr and Instagram, so HMU if you want my usernames. I believe loosely in karma, fate, kismet, déjà vu, reincarnation, dreams, destiny & fate. I love for stores: Etsy, Hot Topic, Francesca's, & Claire’s. People say I look like Brenton Thwaites. My Celeb Hotties are: Joseph Gordon-Levitt *swoon*, James Franco, Paul McCartney, Jake Gyllenhaal, John Krasinski & Josh Hutcherson (I have no idea why they all mostly start with “J” lol). But my favourite actors are Robert De Niro and Dustin Hoffman. · My favourite foods/restaurants are mangos, 99 Restaurant, Dominoes pizza, pickles, & Pinkberry/Froyo World.

Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. "If you wait to tell someone you love them, it’s too late." -Paul McCartney "If you don’t shoot, you don’t score." "It’s all okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end." "And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make." -Paul McCartney Looking for: • Penpal • Art Pals • Package Pals • Snail Mail I send small gifts, and even surprise you when I’m thinking of you. **I ask that your age is 18-23.** No country requirements, I enjoy using stamps lol. What I expect from a pen pal is LGBTQA respect and a consistency to correspondence. But I seriously love meeting new people with different interests and writing to them.

    I've been a singer for 11 years, artist for 9, guitarist for 3, and an active member of PETA and peta2 for not even a year. I'm excited to see where this journey takes me! Feel free to add me!
