Please take a moment to read this important letter and Arthur’s birthday wish, watch the video, and sign the associated petition(s). Thank you!

Animals are my friends, and I do not eat my friends.

Open Letter to Dr. Richard Schwartz, President of the Jewish Vegetarians of North America (JVNA), and coordinator of the society of Ethical and Religious Vegetarians (SERV), from Our Compass’s Arthur Poletti.

Hello, Richard:

I am trying to persuade vegetarians and vegans and people on the fence to donate a SMALL amount of money ($10.00) to my September 1st birthday wish. Richard, I hope you and some or many of your associates will consider a SMALL donation to the Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine *SCHOOL LUNCH REVOLUTION* as well.  Please help me reach my goal of raising $1000.00 for this extremely important cause.

Every School Student Who Is A Vegetarian Or A Vegan Or On The Fence Should Be Aware Of And Help Promote The PHYSICIANS COMMITTEE FOR RESPONSIBLE MEDICINE SCHOOL LUNCH REVOLUTION to inform school officials and STUDENTS of all the benefits of complete vegetarian and vegan lunch options. Every school should offer vegetarian and vegan choices as an option to eating animal flesh and dairy products. The time is long overdue to begin removing animal flesh from school lunch menus throughout the United States for the urgently needed benefit of humans, animals, the earth, and the earth’s atmosphere. Every student in the country should eventually view the following short video that reveals the obvious reasons to stop eating animal flesh:

Lastly, animals should not have to die so that school children can eat especially when vegetarian and vegan options are much healthier and taste great.

    Personnellement, je suis athée mais je suis heureuse d’apprendre que des croyants également peuvent être végétariens.

    Donc, bonne continuation.
