June 19th is the 3rd anniversary of the late activist Regan Russell’s death. On June 19th, 2020 she was ran over by a slaughter truck driver while she was crossing the street at Fearman’s slaughterhouse in Burlington, Ontario, Canada. To this day, the driver was only charged a $2,000 fine- the minimum possible fine. Regan’s life was worth more than that.
On June 24th, we’ll be honoring Regan and supporting the animals at your local Vegas vegan sanctuary, All Friends Animal Sanctuary.
Starting at 6 pm until sundown, we’ll be planting 7 trees to provide shade for the animal residents at All Friends. Nevada Plants will be lending their expertise. Vegan food will be provided for volunteers from Chef Louie’s Vegan Food and Erbs Vegan Kitchen, and Vegan Keda Veggie Eats will be at the sanctuary with her soaps and other goods for sale.
Especially if you have tree planting experience we’d love your help (but tree planting experience isn’t necessary).
About Regan Russell:
Since 1979, Regan advocated on behalf of forgotten and vulnerable humans and non-human animals, was arrested 11 times for civil disobedience, and was loved by all those who knew her.
Bill 156, passed two days before Regan’s death, criminalized recording/documenting what happens in animal ag at slaughter houses, farms and any animal exploitative entity. Whistleblowers were persecuted for exposing the truth that the powers that be try hard to keep hidden.
To keep Regan’s memory alive and to continue to share her story, and for the animals she fought so bravely for, please join us!
All Friends is a private sanctuary near Town Square. Please message Las Vegas Animal Save for more details.
