This past Saturday, Ryan, Cody, and I tabled at a college expo at the Los Angeles Convention Center to talk to current and future college students about our campaign to get McDonald’s suppliers to stop some of the worst abuses of chickens on the planet.

Students who signed our petition against McDonald’s took a stand against suppliers’ practice of slicing the beaks off live birds with a hot blade, shackling the animals by their hind legs, and slitting their throats while they’re still conscious.

The good news? This event was a big success for us, as we got more than 700 petition signatures! We also gave students free stickers and information on how they can help animals!

Check out some of the pics that we snapped at the event:

McDonald’s is one of the biggest sellers of chicken in the United States. Not only does the fast-food chain contribute to the enormous suffering of chickens, its products are also bad for us and bad for the environment. What can you do? Boycott McDonald’s, and go vegan!

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
