ARC (Awakening Respect and Compassion for all Sentient Beings) 

On April 29, hundreds of thousands of people will converge at the People's Climate March in Washington, DC, at a critical time to march for our climate and our future. That day, we invite you to join us as we march as part of the Plant-Powered Planet Protectors, a diverse coalition with a powerful message: Anyone can choose to protect the planet and our future every time we sit down at the dinner table.

A WorldWatch report estimates that 32,000 million tons of carbon dioxide are emitted by livestock production each year, while the U.S. EPA implicates animal agriculture as the largest emitter of methane, a much more powerful greenhouse gas. And according to the United Nations, animal agriculture is responsible for 18 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions--more than the exhaust from the entire transportation sector (13.5%)--and reducing our consumption of animal products is essential to preventing the most devastating impacts of climate change. 

Please join us on April 29 to take a bite out of climate change, habitat destruction, pollution, and resource shortages--it starts with filling your plate with healthy and delicious vegan meals! We aim to bring together the diverse voices and organizations advocating for sustainable plant-based eating under a single banner--the Plant-Powered Planet Protectors--for a strong, united message at the March that will be heard loud and clear. To this end, we are reaching out to organizations far and wide to participate in this collaborative effort. If you haven’t already heard from someone and would like to get involved with P4@PCM, please contact us.

Sylvia's Story

When an ARC member asked us to save a pregnant "beef" cow on the way to the stockyards, we weren't sure how to help. Thanks to Full Circle Farm Sanctuary who was able to take her, Sylvia will now live out her life, with her calf, and all the other rescued animals at the sanctuary, in peace and freedom, surrounded by gentle loving friends, as all beings deserve.

"A human being is a part of the whole, called by us, 'Universe,' a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest -- a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."

-Albert Einstein
