Putting our art auction proceeds to good use!
Those of you who attended the Wake Up Weekend! art auction in January may recall that a portion of the proceeds of your generosity went to Farm Sanctuary in Watkins Glen, NY. Check out what the celebrated "Gray Lady" has to say about Farm Sanctuary and its Executive Director Gene Baur in this feature from the Food and Wine section, annoyingly titled Bringing Oinks and Moos into the Food Debate. Though the author's disposition toward animal compassion advocacy is a bit irritating at times, the article does touch on an issue that is generating a lot of controversy in the movement right now--namely, that of whether animal advocacy organizations are diluting their animal liberation message in order to make inroads into the mainstream.
