Discussing Animal Group Fundraisers That Serve Animals

James LaVeck, from Tribe of Heart (producers of the wonderful films The Witness and Peaceable Kingdom: The Journey Home) was approached by someone concerned about an animal advocacy group hosting a fundraiser event that was serving animal products.

This is not an uncommon dilemma, I have personally withdrawn support from the BC-SPCA because of this, as has Sarah Kramer (open letter from Sarah, and a follow-up.) They continue to host these types of events, and will have vegan 'options'.

James is very eloquent in how he approaches this dilemma, and I encourage all to watch:

Hopefully these other groups will begin to listen, and we can all work towards real, meaningful animal advocacy together.
